DIRTIES OF THE BOARD. 

The duties of the Board fall under two heads, viz., Supervi- 
sion and Administration. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 7 

Supervision. 

The duties of supervision comprise : — 

a. The visitation and inspection of the State Infirmary, at 
Tewksbury ; the State Farm, at Bridgewater ; the Lyman School 
for Boys, at Westborough ; the State Industrial School for Girls, 
at Lancaster ; the Massachusetts Hospital School, at Canton ; the 
Industrial School for Boys, at Shirley; the State Sanatoria 
at Rutland, North Reading, Lakeville and Westfield; the city 
and town almshouses ; the county truant schools ; the children 
in the custody of the Lyman and Industrial Schools cared for in 
families ; the children and adults supported by cities and towns ; 
and such charitable corporations reporting to the Board as ask 
for or consent to such visitation and inspection. 

h. Investigation, with public hearing, and report to the Sec- 
retary of the Commonwealth in all cases of applications for 
charters to charitable organizations. 

c. Publication of the results of visitation and inspection, and 
tabulated statements regarding the number of paupers and the 
cost of public poor relief. 

d. Recommendations to the Legislature for changes in old laws 
and the enactment of new ones. 

a. Visitation. 
The direct visitation of the State institutions and of the pri- 
vate charitable corporations specified in Acts of 1909, chapter 
379, as well as the investigation under Acts of 1910, chapter 181, 
of charities seeking incorporation, is made by committees and 
officials of the Board, as directed in the by-laws. The results 
of this visitation, with three exceptions, are given on p. 26 
et seq. of this part of the Report. (1) A reference to the inves- 
tigation of associations which have applied for charters since 
the Acts of 1910, chapter 181, went into eifect will be found in 
Part II. (pp. iii-v), which is devoted exclusively to private chari- 
table corporations. (2) The inspection of charitable agencies 
provided for by Acts of 1909, chapter 379, has just commenced. 
A statement in regard to this part of the Board's duties is also 
included in Part II. fp. v). (3) The results of almshouse 



8 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

inspection are given in full in Part III. During the official 
year every almshouse has been visited once by the inspector; 
19 have been visited twice; 11 three times; and 3 four times. 
In addition, the inspector has conferred with Overseers of the 
Poor, or their representatives, of 36 different cities and towns 
regarding matters of almshouse condition and management; 
and with Overseers of the Poor, or their representatives, of 
14 different cities and towns upon other matters concerning 
the business of the Board. Members of the Board have made 
a number of visits. The same helpful work is being carried 
on by the Almshouse Visitors, whose kindly visits mean much 
for the comfort and happiness of the almshouse inmates. 

The inspector reports efficient management on the part of 
warden and matron in the great majority of almshouses. In- 
stances are very few where a good standard of cleanliness and 
order was not found, and in these cases suggestions from the 
inspector were accepted and improvement was shown on the 
second visit. !N'ot only is the showing, on the part of matrons, 
good in regard to matters of housekeeping, but the kindly 
care bestowed by them on the sick, aged and feeble is worthy 
of commendation. Whenever the inspector has conferred with 
Overseers, or their representatives, he has met with cooperation, 
and the matters under discussion have been in the great majority 
of cases satisfactorily adjusted. 

h. Publication. 

In addition to its full Annual Report, of which 2,000 copies 
are printed, there are issued under the law, for the use of the 
Board, 500 copies of so much of the Report as relates to the 
city and town almshouses and statistics of paupers supported by 
cities and towns, and 1,000 copies of so much as relates to chari- 
table corporations. 

The Pauper Abstract found in Part III. of the Report will 
furnish many details respecting the poor supported or relieved 
by each city and town the past year, — their numbers, condition, 
treatment, and cost, — in a tabulated form which facilitates com- 
parison. The facts are gathered from the continuous record of 
the permanent poor which has been kept by this Board for many 
vears, from the annual returns of Overseers of the Poor, and. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 9 

as regards cost especially, from the published town reports. The 
statistics require returns for the year terminating March 31, and 
accordingly the numbers and classifications of persons supported 
or relieved relate to that period strictly; the expenditures and 
receipts on pauper account should relate to the same period, but 
quite generally among the small towns the figures are drawn 
from the annual reports as covering nearly the specified period. 
In all cases, however, the accounts cover the most recent com- 
pleted year. . Nothing better can be secured until the adoption 
of a uniform town year and a uniform system of account. 

It appears from the Abstract that within the year covered the 
whole number of persons who received support gr relief from 
the cities and towns — excluding vagrants — was 68,162, of 
whom 11,898 (7,060 males and 4,838 females) received full 
support. This is a decrease of 9,961, or 12.7 per cent., in the 
whole number; and of 683, or 5.4 per cent., in full support, as 
compared with the year preceding. The average number fully 
supported was 6,100, against 6,665 in 1908-09, a decrease of 
565, or almost 8.5 per cent. ; but on March 31, 1910, the number 
receiving support was 6,425, or 30 more than the year before. 
This decrease in full support is due to the cause stated in the 
Board's last report, — the transfer from town to State support 
of special classes of dependents, the insane, the idiotic, the epi- 
leptic, and the inebriate, none of which have received support 
from the towns since July 1, 1909, if requiring institutional 
treatment. 

Of the average number fully supported, 4,701 were in the 
town almshouses, 289 in various institutions, chiefly those of the 
State, and 1,110 in private families, an increase of 36 in pri- 
vate families, but a decrease of 136 in almshouses and 465 in 
other institutions, as compared with 1908-09, from the cause 
referred to above. 

The number receiving temporary aid or partial support is 
reported as 57,009, or, deducting 745 who also received full sup- 
port a part of the year and were so counted, 56,264, or 9,278 
less than in 1908-09, or 14 per cent. ; the estimated average 
number being 19,890, or 2,150 smaller than the year before; a 
decrease of almost 10 per cent. 

Vagrants reported by overseers numbered 29,972, a daily 



10 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

average of about 82, a few less than in 1908-09. The overseers, 
however, generally report such only as come under their own 
care and are entertained out of the pauper funds, while to a 
large extent vagrants are under police supervision. A full 
report of tramps would doubtless much increase the above fig- 
ures. Their cost, reported as $18,375 outside the almshouse, is 
included in the cost of partial support; at the almshouse it is 
very little, and not separable from the general cost. 

The current expenditures by cities and towns during the year 
for pauper relief and support were $2,567,092, against $2,698,- 
382 in 1908-09 ; the sum expended at the almshouses being 
$1,156,873, at other institutions $65,667, and in private families 
$149,226, making a total for full support of $1,371,766, while 
partial support was furnished to the amount of $970,180. The 
expenses of administration were $225,146. These outlays by 
cities and towns were in part oifset by receipts and reimburse- 
ments amounting, from all sources, including the Common- 
wealthy to $552,939, leaving the net expense for the year 
$2,014,153, as compared with $2,140,601 for the previous year, 
a decrease of $126,448, or 5.9 per cent. The $970,180 ex- 
pended in partial support for the 57.009 persons relieved would 
allow to each person $17, or $1.50 more than the previous 
year's allowance, ascribable to the increased cost of living or 
the larger need of relief. 

The net cost of the poor in town almshouses has been $827,- 
463, against $827,636 for the previous year, a minute decrease. 
The average number of pauper inmates having been 4,701, the 
weekly per capita cost was $3.38, or 8 cents more than the year 
before and 13 cents more than in 1907-08. The net cost at 
other institutions was $63,949, the average number supported 
289, and the average weekly cost $4.25 ; while support in private 
families cost $145,733 for an average number of 1,110 persons, 
a weekly rate of $2.52, or 6 cents less than in 1908-09. To the 
above should be added the extraordinary expenses, mostly at the 
almshouses, which in 1909-10, as heretofore, amounted to nearly 
$50,000. 

To sum up, the returns show that the net current expenses 
of the cities and towns for the support or relief of 68,162 per- 
sons within the year 1909-10, including $225,126 for expenses 
of administration, was $2,014,153 ; a decrease of 5.9 per cent, in 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 11 

tlie cost and 12.7 per cent, in the number aided. The population 
of the State as shown by the late census was 3,366,416 ; so that 
for the cities and towns as a whole the number of paupers 
equalled 20.25 for each 1,000 inhabitants, and cost about $0.60 
for each inhabitant. 

The adult State poor, as distinguished from insane or crim- 
inal classes, if fully supported, are found chiefly at the State 
Infirmary and the State Farm, w^here all are maintained at 
common expense; State pauper children are found only in pri- 
vate families. For the past year they have averaged 4,488 
in number at the two institutions, while the State children sup- 
ported, a rapidly increasing class, have averaged 3,050. The 
approximate cost to the State for the above classes has been 
$672,400 at the institutions named and in families $472,396. 
Those partially supported at charge of the State, totaling 10,- 
705, are included in the corresponding class of the town's poor ; 
all public outdoor relief. State as w^ell as town, being given 
through the Overseers of the Poor, with rare exceptions. 

In Part II. of the Report are given abstracts of the reports of 
charitable corporations whose personal property is exempt from 
taxation, the reports being made annually to the Board, under 
the law. Of the 753 corporations whose returns were called 
for during the last official year, 108 failed to report; 33 of 
these delinquents have heretofore made the return. The re- 
maining 645 corporations reported, 96 of them for the first 
time. 

The Board hopes in time to secure returns from every char- 
ity which comes within the law, and thus make Part II. a 
complete directory of such agencies. 

"No attempt has been made to furnish totals of the statistics 
of these associations, since the basis of calculation adopted by 
them is not uniform, and a summary would therefore be mis- 
leading. The Board plans to request private charitable institu- 
tions to employ such methods in the keeping of records and 
accounts as will produce greater uniformity in these returns. 
To illustrate, many of the hospitals and dispensaries report the 
number of their outpatients by treatments, and not by the indi- 
viduals treated. 

The seriatim presentation of the separate reports serves well 



12 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

the primary purpose for which they are published, — that of 
acquainting the public with the work of the various incorporated 
charitable agencies throughout the State. 

c. Legislation, 
The principal recommendations of the Board for legislative 
action during the year were as follows : — 

1. Material increase in pathological work at the State In- 
firmary and at the several State sanatoria. 

2. The removal of the insane from the State Infirmary. 

3. Such alteration in the law as will extend the age limit for 
commitments of children to the care and custody of the Board 
to include the whole period of minority. 

4. Extensive revision of chapter 125 of the Revised Laws, 
governing the incorporation of private charities. 

The Board recommends that the State hospitals place more 
emphasis upon pathological research. It would of course be 
inadvisable for the State to enter upon investigations as fre- 
quently carried on in university medical schools or in insti- 
tutes for medical research, — foundations which can use private 
funds for work which may or may not yield positive results. 
The State, on the other hand, can and should undertake the test- 
ing of definite hypotheses as to diagnosis and treatment, the 
securing of answers to important and well-defined questions con- 
cerning the diseases of individuals, and of statistical data which 
will bear upon the diagnosis and treatment of future patients. 

Massachusetts is not deriving the benefit it should from the 
opportunity for medical research afforded by its State hospitals. 
The clinical and laboratory work of a hospital must be so closely 
associated, in order to give scientific individual treatment, that 
the public will naturally look to these institutions, not only for 
efiicient care of their patients, but for some contribution to 
science. Thus, with four hospitals, all treating tuberculosis, 
Massachusetts ought to be adding steadily to the understanding 
of that disease. 

The fifth State hospital, that at Tewksbury, affords a scope 
for research such as would seldom be met with throughout the 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 13 

country. This institution treats every disease except leprosy, 
taking annually between five and six thousand sick persons under 
its care. The opportunity is worthy the mettle of our best 
scientists. The State Infirmary is a hospital that might, and in 
time should, have an eminent department of pathology. Such a 
development, of course, would require first-rate laboratory 
equipment and numerous autopsies. Laboratory equipment is 
expensive, and might be a gradual growth. 

In addition to the study of individual sickness, the State In- 
firmary offers a field for getting at general causes of disease, 
and for devising methods of prevention through public hygiene. 
A State hospital should afford a public health laboratory which 
would serve as the clearing-house for data from an entire State. 

Between medical practice and medical science there is no 
fundamental opposition of interest. Aggressive scientific work 
in the laboratory would detract nothing from the present good 
care of patients, and would give the doctors in the State hos- 
pitals an added inspiration in their practical work. 

In recommending the extension of the age limit within which 
dependent minors may be committed to the care and custody 
of the Board, to include the period of minority, the Board calls 
attention to the fact that the necessity of supervision and care 
does not cease at the moment the child reaches sixteen. Super- 
vision of dependent settled minors, under sixteen, permissive 
under the present law has proved helpful ; and it is felt that an 
extension of time, to include all minors, will provide more con- 
sistent care and supervision at that period in the child's life 
when it is most essential. 

In the matter of the incorporation of private charities, the 
Board's experience through investigation of new organizations 
and inspection of charities already formed has strengthened a 
growing conviction that the laws providing for the incorporation 
of private charities are no longer adequate. Individuals seeking 
a charter for charitable purposes should at least show to the satis- 
faction of the Commonwealth that they have competence and con- 
scientious purpose. By such grant from the State an organiza- 



14 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

tion becomes privileged ; it may hold property and pay no taxes 
therefor; it may solicit donations from the public for no return 
other than a promise to perform acts making for the moral or 
civic betterment of the community ; and for these acts the public 
must pay in advance. A private charity, therefore, is a public 
trust; and as such its sponsors should render full and fair ac- 
count. The laws providing investigation and inspection, if sup- 
plemented by a revised law governing incorporation, would, the 
Board feels, result in the more exact application of charitable 
funds to charitable purposes. 

Legislation of 1910 affecting the State Board of Charity may 
be summarized as follows : — 

Chapter 198. — Establishing the names of the several State san- 
atoria. 

Chapter Jf91. — Establishing the name and conferring certain 
powers upon The Trustees of Hospitals for Consumptives. 

Chapter 569. — Providing for the licensing and regulation by 
the State Board of Charity of lying-in hospitals in cities and 
towns. 

Resolves, Chapter 6. — Extending the time within which the 
State Board of Charity is required to report on the matter of the 
establishing of a State Hospital for Incurables. 

Resolves, Chapter 63. — State Board of Charity directed to inves- 
tigate the advisability of amending and revising the pauper settle- 
ment laws. 

Resolves, Chapter 76. — Providing for an investigation into a 
system of caring for tubercular patients by State and local authori- 
ties. 

Resolves, Chapter 93. — Further extension of time within which 
the State Board of Charity is required to report for the matter of a 
State Hospital for Incurables.

Resolves of 1910, Chapter 76. 

Resolve to provide for an investigation and report upon a 

SYSTEM of CARING FOR TUBERCULAR PATIENTS BY STATE AND 
LOCAL AUTHORITIES. 

Resolved, That a commission consisting of the chairman of the 
state board of health and six others to be appointed by the gov- 
ernor, two each from the state board of health, the state board of 
charity, and the state commission on consumptive hospitals, is 
hereby instructed to investigate the means and methods now em- 
ployed by the state and by local communities in caring for tuber- 
cular patients in hospitals, sanatoriums, hnd dispensaries, and, if it

be found advisable, to report a plan which by correlating the said 
means and methods will prevent duplication and waste of effort. 
Said commission shall investigate and report particularly as to 
the relationship between this state and its municipalities in the 
care of tubercular patients, both in respect to the classes of cases 
cared for and to the apportionment of the financial burden caused 
thereby ; 

As to the proper use, so far as the care of tuberculosis is con-

food at their homes, and the best means of so doing, if to do so be 
deemed advisable; 

As to the advisability of establishing dispensaries for the dis- 
covery, supervision, and treatment of cases of tuberculosis by the 
agency of local boards of health. 

The members of the said commission shall serve without pay, 
but they may incur such expense for assistance or otherwise as may 
be allowed by the governor and council. They shall give public 
hearings and make a report of their findings and recommendations 
to the governor on or before the first day of November, nineteen 
hundred and ten. The report shall be printed by the common- 
wealth, and during the month of December, nineteen hundred and 
ten, a copy shall be mailed to each person elected to the general 
court for the year nineteen hundred and eleven. The total expense 
to be incurred under the provisions of this resolve shall not exceed 
two thousand dollars. [Approved April 21, 1910. 

Pursuant to the direction contained in chapter 50, Resolves 
of 1909, the Board makes the following report to the Legislature 
of 1911: — 

To the Honorable Senate and House of Representatives of the Common- 
wealth of Massachusetts in General Court assembled. 

The State Board of Charity was directed, by chapter 50, Resolves 
of 1909, to investigate the advisability of establishing a state hos- 
pital for incurables, and such other matters in connection therewith 
as it may deem important, and to report to the next General Court, 



18 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

on or before the second Tuesday of January, the result of its in- 
vestigation. 

By chapters 6 and 93, Resolves of 1910, the time for report 
pursuant to this resolve was extended to the third Wednesday in 
January, 1911. 

In response to this instruction, the Board, through its experi- 
enced inspector of almshouses, has made a careful inquiry as to the 
number of persons, public charges, who might be eligible to an in- 
stitution of this kind. There were excluded, of course, all those of 
particular types which the State has already undertaken to care 
for, — the insane, feeble-minded, epileptic, blind, crippled or de- 
formed children, and consumptives. 

In the beginning of the inquiry, 166 cities and towns reported no 
cases. Of those reporting cases, the cities were not considered fur- 
ther, as they were believed to be giving or able to give adequate 
care. Three hundred and forty cases were reported by towns. Of 
these cases, nearly one-half were visited by officials of the Board. 
Over one-third, believed to be thoroughly representative, were very 
carefully investigated. Of this third, 38 were bedridden or in 
wheel chairs; 50 were able to be about, and were believed not to 
need special hospital care; the rest were plainly ineligible. Inves- 
tigation further showed that of the 38 only a very small percentage 
were being cared for in such manner as to make a change to a 
hospital necessary or even desirable. Many were being properly 
cared for, in their homes or in homes of relatives, at a small ex- 
pense to the town; while others were inmates of almshouses, and 
receiving good care. Some cases, from very small communities, 
have been boarded in hospitals or almshouses or families, elsewhere, 
at prices varying from $2 to $20 a week. Even if this percentage, 
noted above, be multiplied by three, the result is still incon- 
siderable. 

Before reporting definitely, however, the Board has secured spe- 
cific and up-to-date information by a circular letter, under date of 
December 13, 1910, to the overseers of all towns and cities, request- 
ing that all suitable cases for whom admission was desired to such 
a hospital (if such were provided), at a cost to the cities or towns 
of not over $5 per week, be registered with this Board on or before 
January 12, 1911, on forms enclosed with the letter. The sum of 
$5 was suggested because it seemed a reasonable division of expense 
between town and State for possible treatment. This also was 
the sum suggested by the Commission appointed to investigate and 
report upon a System of carins: for Tubercular Patients, for sup- 
port of inmates at the State Tuberculosis Sanatoria. 

On January 12, 103 cities and towns had replied with applica- 
tions for IS persons. Of these 4 are plainly ineligible. One city 
reported 3 cases, 1 of which is tuberculous. This city is without a 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 19 

hospital; it should have one. The only two cities in the State 
which have no almshouses report no cases. The diseases assigned 
in the 18 cases reported were : 2 consumption, 2 syphilis, 2 Bright's 
disease, 1 dropsy, 2 diabetes, 1 chronic rheumatism, 2 paralysis, 1 
hernia, tumor and complications, 1 running sore, 1 tumor, 1 cancer, 
1 probable cancer, 1 spinal disease. 

The Board feels strongly that towns should, as far and as fast as 
possible, develop, by good hospitals and visiting nursing, proper 
care of all such diseased and ill persons. It so believes because 
such care should be made for the sick poor, whether suffering from 
acute or chronic diseases ; and because sick persons should be kept, 
as much as possible, in their home environment. Towns certainly 
should pay for care of these " incurables,^' so few in number. 

Therefore, as a result of investigation, the Board reports that in 
its opinion such a State institution is unnecessary. 

The Board has made one other special investigation during 
the year. As directed by chapter 63 of the Resolves of 1910, 
the special study set out in the following report has been com- 
j)leted : — 

To the Honorable Senate and House of JRepresentatives of the Common- 
wealth of Massachusetts in General Court assembled. 

The State Board of Charity was directed, by chapter 63, Resolves 
of 1910, to report to the General Court in print, on or before Jan- 
uary 18, 1911, the findings of the Board as to the advisability of 
amending and revising the pauper settlement laws of the Common- 
wealth. Accordingly, the Board submits to your honorable bodies 
the following report. 

In investigating this matter, four hearings were held; one to 
which all overseers of the poor were invited ; another to which all 
boards of health were invited, and two for the general public, ad- 
vertised in the press. A study has been made of the laws and 
practices in other States. 

The Board recommends that chapter 80 of the Revised Laws, of 
the settlement of paupers, be repealed, and that the following bill, 
at the end of this report, be enacted into law, to take its place. 

The proposed law repeats word for word the present law (see 
Revised Laws, chapter 80) : (1) section 1, mode 1, concerning 
settlement of married women: (2) section 1, mode 10, the acquire- 
ment of a settlement by military or naval service; (3) section 1, 
mode 11, as to settlement upon division or incorporation of towns; 
(4) section 3, the provision that to maintain certain persons in 
institutions, imder certain conditions, is not to pauperize. Also, 
the provision of section 6 is kept, by which settlements, with cer- 



20 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

tain exceptions, are lost if they have not been fully acquired since 
May 1, 1860. The question of a later elate, as 1880, has been 
considered, and a change not deemed advisable. 

The proposed law omits, as antiquated or not necessary : section 
1, modes 4, 7, 8 and 9, the acquirement of settlement by ownership 
and occupancy of real estate; by certain town officials because of 
their offices; by ordained ministers of the Gospel in parish duties; 
by apprentices. 

Touching children, two significant changes are suggested. First, 
as to legitimate children, the addition that if the father dies during 
the minority of his children, they shall thereafter have the settle- 
ment of their mother; and in the event of the divorce of the par- 
ents, the minor children shall have the settlement of the parent 
to whom the court awards their custody. Secondly, illegitimate 
children are to have the settlement of their mother, if she has any 
in the Commonwealth; without the limitation of the present law, 
which says also " at the time of their birth.'' By these provisions, 
the dependent members of one family will be placed under the 
whole charge and care of one official board, the local overseers, 
instead of some of them, as now, being paid for by the State, and 
therefore not merely under the care of the overseers, but under 
the supervision of the State visitors. In other words, the respon- 
sibility for the whole family will be, more than now, vested in one 
body of relief officers. 

The requirement of payment of taxes is omitted. It is not re- 
quired for the exercise of the very important duty of voting. The 
tendency of the times is away from such restrictions. Massachu- 
setts stands almost alone in such a qualification for acquiring a 
pauper settlement. The present law requires payment of three 
taxes within five years. The tax in question is practically the poll 
tax. There is much difference in practice between various cities 
and towns as to strictness in collection of that tax. The sum of 
six dollars, now required for a settlement, seems wholly unrelated 
to benefits from pauper aid — to say nothing of the advantages 
which each resident receives in so many ways from his community. 

By omitting the requirement of payment of taxes, men, and 
women who do not derive a settlement by marriage, will acquire 
settlement in the same way. So will be avoided the cases where 
the wife is wholly in the charge and care of the town, and the 
husband, because non-settled, is a charge to the State and under 
supervision of State officials. 

As to length of residence in city or town by which the settlement 
may be acquired, the Board believes that Massachusetts should and 
eventually will cut down the five years now prescribed to the period 
of one year, which is that of most States of the United States. 
That our Xew England States are still conservative seems to be 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 21 

no reason against the change: for our neighboring State on the 
west, New York, with its large population, large cities and many 
immigrants, has had the one-year period for years, to its own satis- 
faction and with no complication to its neighbors. Vermont had 
a settlement law almost as rigid as that of its neighbors, New 
Hampshire and Massachusetts, until, fifteen years ago, it practi- 
call}^ wiped all away except the requirement of residence for three 
years. The tendency in the United States in all such matters is 
bound to be towards simplification and uniformity. But the Board, 
while feeling this strongly, puts in its bill a period of three years 
of continuous residence for acquirement of a settlem.ent, in order 
that changes may be less extreme at a time of readjustment be- 
tween local and State expenditures. 

By the present law, a settlement is not lost, unless by acquire- 
ment of one in another community, until a person has been out of 
Massachusetts for ten consecutive years. By this, and by the pres- 
ent rigid requirement for gaining a settlement, arises the frequent 
situation that cities and towns are paving for the pauper aid of 
persons who have been living for years in other communities. They 
are paying even for some persons who have never lived in them. 
While these same places are frequently not paying for the care of 
persons who have been hona fide residents in them for several years. 
This situation is wholly illogical, especially if there is any reason 
in the plea of local attachments. Responsibility for treatment of 
needy persons is divided, unnecessarily. The Board suggests that 
a settlement be lost by three years' absence from a city or town, 
excepting residence as an inmate of a public institution. 

If the easier acquirement of a settlement places some persons, 
not settled by present law, on the support of cities and towns, the 
easier loss of a settlement will, on the other hand, place some per- 
sons, who hold a settlement under present law, on the State charge. 
It is hoped that in this way an adjustment will work out with 
reasonable equity. The proposed law provides that existing settle- 
ments continue until affected, if at all, by the new law; that a proc- 
ess of acquiring a settlement, already begun, shall not be lost. The 
law will be in no way retroactive. 

Section 2 of the present law, which provides that no person shall 
acquire a settlement while receiving relief as a pauper, unless 
within five years after, he reimburses the cost thereof to the city or 
town, is changed by making the period two years instead of five. 

A few persons have suggested that all paupers should come under 
direct care of State officials. Massachusetts has already adopted 
the policy of State care of particular types of needy persons who 
require highly specialized treatment, usually institutional, or who 
as dependent children placed out in families, can best and most 
economically be dealt with by one placino^-out State agency instead 



22 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

of by many local boards of overseers. State care of the tubercu- 
lous is not a precedent for its care of all paupers; for tuberculosis 
is a disease highly dangerous to the public health, against which 
all the forces of the community, in the largest sense, must com- 
bine. The Board believes the policy of complete State care should 
not be extended to paupers generally. Under the proposed law, 
while local overseers are the immediate agents of relief, the State 
will pay for, and the State Board district visitors will have super- 
vision over, the relief of paupers who are newcomers to the Com- 
monwealth or wanderers within it. The local overseers will have 
entire responsibility for paupers who may fairly be deemed resi- 
dents. Such a division seems sensible, if the State is to have re- 
sponsibility for any. 

There has been urged, in connection v/ith settlement laws, the 
value, for purposes of helpful dealing with paupers, of informa- 
tion gained by inquiries into settlements. No doubt some such 
useful information is so found, and a simplification of the settle- 
ment law will not in itself be any security that overseers and vis- 
itors will do better relief work. But the Board believes that much 
time of overseers of the poor and of visitors is now taken up in 
matters which pertain merely to the question of payment for relief. 
A simpler law will make available more time for the treatment of 
the needy, looking to remedy of needs and removal of need. Some 
overseers and visitors are now doing remedial work, with far sight, 
with large views of their duties. Things are not done now as 
they were a half-century ago — in business, or relief of the sick, 
or relief of the destitute. 

The Massachusetts law of settlement is less rigid to-day than a 
generation ago, but most of the States of the Union are ahead of 
it. Witness the three which receive the largest number of aliens, 
all States with varied conditions of large cities, industrial centres, 
towns and farms : New York and Illinois, with requirement of resi- 
dence of a year only ; Pennsylvania, with practically the same. In 
England, from which we inherited our poor law, largely, there is a 
marked trend, to-day, to a very simple settlement, that expense 
and effort may be lessened in deciding who shall pay the bills. 

Proposed Law as to Settlement of Paupers. 

1 Section- 1. Legal settlements may be acquired in any city or 

2 town in the following manner and not otherwise : — 

3 First, Any man or woman, including a married woman whose hiis- 

4 band has no settlement within the commonwealth, of the age of 

5 twenty-one years, who hereafter resides in any city or town within 

6 this commonwealth for three consecutive years, shall thereby acquire 

7 a settlement in such place. 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 23 

8 Second, A married woman shall follow and have the settlement 

9 of her husband if he has any within the commonwealth; otherwise, 

10 she shall retain her own at the time of marriage if she then had any. 

11 Third, Legitimate children shall follow and have the settlement of 

12 their father if he has any within the commonwealth; otherwise, they 

13 shall follow and have the settlement of their mother if she has any; 

14 if the father dies during the minority of his children they shall there- 

15 after follow and have the settlement of their mother ; in the event of 

16 the divorce of the parents the minor children shall follow and have 

17 the settlement of the parent to whom the court awards the custody of 

18 said minor children. 

19 Fourth. Illegitimate children shall follow and have the settlement 

20 of their mother if she has any within the commonwealth. 

21 Fifth, A person who was enlisted and mustered into the military or 

22 naval service of the United States, as a part of the quota of a city 

23 or town in this commonwealth, under any call of the President of the 

24 United States during the war of the rebellion or who was assigned 

25 as a part of the quota thereof after having been enlisted and mus- 

26 tered into said service, and who ser^-ed for not less than one year, or 

27 died or became disabled from wounds or disease received or con- 

28 tracted while engaged in such service, or while a prisoner of the 

29 enemy, and his wife or widow and minor children, shall be deemed 

30 thereby to have acquired a settlement in such place; and any person 

31 who would otherwise be entitled to a settlement under this clause, 

32 but who was not a part of the quota of any city or town, shall, if he 

33 served as a part of the quota of the commonwealth, be deemed to 

34 have acquired a settlement in the place where he actually resided at 

35 the time of his enlistment. But these provisions shall not apply to 

36 any person who was enlisted and received a bounty for such enlist- 

37 ment in more than one place unless the second enlistment was made 

38 after an honorable discharge from the first term of service, nor to any 

39 person who has been proved guilty of wilful desertion, or who left 

40 the service otherwise than by reason of disability or an honorable 

41 discharge. 

42 Sixth, Upon the division of a city or town, every person having a 

43 legal settlement therein, but being absent at the time of such divi- 

44 sion, and not having acquired a legal settlement elsewhere, shall have 

45 his legal settlement in the city or town containing the last dwelling 

46 place or home which he had in the city or town so divided ; and, if a 

47 new city or town, composed of a part of one or more other cities or 

48 towns, is incorporated, every person legally settled in the places of 

49 which such new city or town is so composed, and who actually dwells 

50 and has his home within the bounds of such new city or town at the 

51 time of its incorporation, and any person duly qualified as provided 

52 in the fifth clause of this section, who, at the time of his enlistment, 

53 dwelt and had his home within such bounds, shall thereby acquire a 

54 legal settlement in such new place; but no person residing in that 

55 part of a place which upon such division is incorporated into a new 

56 city or town, and who then has no legal settlement therein, shall 

57 acquire any by force of such incorporation only; nor shall such in- 



24 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

58 corporation prevent his acquiring a settlement therein within the 

59 time and by the means hy which he would have gained it there if no 

60 such division had been made. 

1 Section 2. No person shall acquire a settlement, or be in process 

2 of acquiring a settlement, while receiving relief as a pauper, unless, 

3 within two years after the time of receiving such relief, he tenders 

4 reimbursement of the cost thereof to the commonwealth, or city, or 

5 town furnishing the same. 

1 Section 3. No person who actually supports himself and his 

2 family shall be deemed to be a pauper by reason of the commitment 

3 of his wife, child or other relative to an insane hospital or other 

4 institution of charity, reform or correction by order of a court or 

5 magistrate, and of his inability to maintain such wife, child or rela- 

6 tive therein. 

1 Section 4. A person who after the passage of this act is absent 

2 for three consecutive years from the city or town in which he had 

3 a settlement shall thereby lose his settlement. But the time during 

4 which a person shall have been an inmate of any public hospital, 

5 public sanatorium, almshouse, jail, prison, or other public institu- 

6 tion, within the commonwealth, or of a soldiers or sailors home 

7 whether within or without the commonwealth, shall not be counted 

8 in computing the time either for acquiring or for losing a settle- 

9 ment, except as provided in section two. 

1 Section 5. All existing settlements shall continue in force until 

2 changed or defeated by the provisions of this act, and no person who 

3 has begun to acquire a settlement by the laws in force at and before 

4 the time when this chapter takes effect, in any of the ways in which 

5 any period of time is prescribed for a residence or for the contin- 

6 uance or succession of any other act, shall be prevented or delayed 

7 by the provisions hereof, but he shall acquire a settlement by a con- 

8 tinuance or succession of the same residence or other act, in the same 

9 time and manner as if the former laws had continued in force. 

1 Section 6. Any settlement which was not fully acquired subse- 

2 quent to the first day of May in the year eighteen hundred and sixty 

3 is hereby defeated and lost, unless such settlement prevented a sub- 

4 sequent acquisition of settlement in the same place; but if a settle- 

5 ment acquired by marriage is so defeated, the former settlement of 

6 the wife, if not also so defeated, shall be revived. 

1 Section 7. Chapter eighty of the Revised Laws is hereby repealed.

The total appropriation for the maintenance of this insti- 
tution was $388,000. The expenses were $387,471.71, leav- 
ing a balance of $528.29. Of the amount expended, $117,982.17 
was for salaries, wages and labor; all other expenses, $270,- 
017.83. The average weekly cost per capita was $3.52 gross; 
$3.23 net. Valuation of land and buildings, $1,133,975 ; per- 
sonal estate, $400,081.91; total, $1,534,056.91. 

During the year 7,162 persons have been cared for, 457 less 
than in 1909. The largest daily census was 2,490 ; the smallest, 
1,913 ; weekly average, 2,119. Of the whole number, 5,028 were 
treated as hospital patients; classified as medical, 4,969; sur- 
gical, 1,463. Of the patients, 3,245 were admitted from Boston. 
There were in the whole number 1,048 cases of tuberculosis 
(including 919 cases of phthisis), 7 of diphtheria, 17 of typhoid 
fever, 5 of scarlet fever, 15 of whooping cough, and 31 of 
measles. Of the 643 deaths, 234 were from tuberculosis. There 
were 475 surgical operations performed. Of all the hospital 
cases, 1,141, or 22 per cent., were born in Massachusetts; 809, 
or 16 per cent, elsewhere in the United States; the remainder 
were of foreign birth, coming from 45 different countries. 

Several important improvements have been completed within 
the year, and others are still in process. A new wing for the 
men's consumptive hospital, increasing the capacity by 50 beds, 
is nearly finished, and will probably be opened for patients in 
the early spring. Though this addition increases the total capac- 
ity of the men's hospital to 210-220 beds, while the camp pro- 
vides for 60 more, there are 43 men of this class now cared for 
in one of the general wards of the main institution. 



Part I.] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 27 

An addition also to the women's consumptive Hospital, raising 
the total capacity to 80 beds, will be ready for occupancy by 
mid-summer. 

A three-story addition to the nurses' home is practically com- 
pleted, though not yet occupied. When this is available there 
will be accommodation for 82 nurses. 

The heating and lighting plant has been augmented by three 
new 200 horse-power boilers and one 500 kilowatt dynamo. 

The children's ward, now finished, is nearly full. It affords 
provision for 100 children and 25 mothers. 

The Board has given special attention to the problem of the 
maternity cases at the Infirmary. A report of the Board's Com- 
mittee follows : — 

Report of the Committee on After Care of Mothers and 
Children discharged from the State Infirmary. 

The Women's Committee, appointed in December, 1909, to 
take an interest in the girls at Lancaster and in the women and 
children at Tewksbury, is composed of the two women on the 
Board. With the able assistance of its auxiliary visitor, Mrs. 
Susan H. Hinkley, it has now been following up the maternity 
cases at the State Infirmary for a year. During this time the 
Committee has met fortnightly, to consider what to do for the 
mothers with infants under its charge. For the difficult work in- 
volved, it has not had at command the full time of a single 
worker. The regular Board visitors, together with the auxiliary 
visitor at Tewksbury and a member of the Board, have made the 
most necessary outside visits. Since May the Committee has had 
an increasing proportion of the time of an efficient woman visitor 
who was already a member of the adult poor department. The 
work has developed in the course of the year, and the Committee 
now finds that what it entered upon as a simple if onerous under- 
taking is showing itself to involve fundamental social problems. 

Of the 151 babies born at Tewksbury this year, the larger pro- 
portion are illegitimate. The fathers of these children acknowl- 
edge their responsibility in but a small number of cases; in many, 
the man is untrustworthy and shiftless, and has disappeared; in 
others, the mother has been too lax in character to prove the iden- 
tity of her child's father. For the most part, the mothers are 
only half competent as workers. Many of them would be glad to 
give up their babies if they could. Such women are not easy to 
establish in an honest way of life. The Committee has aimed, 
however, to send no woman, except in case of deporting, to a situa- 
tion, or even to friends or relatives, without first visiting and ap- 



28 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

proving the home in question. The few exceptions to this rule 
have been sent to some temporary home. This shifting of respon- 
sibility to other shoulders has been occasioned by the extreme 
difficulty of finding respectable families who will receive a woman 
who is not only encumbered with an infant, but who is also a poor 
worker and of bad character; and by the fact that the Committee 
must do its work within a limited time. When the woman's baby 
is four weeks old, the Board has no legal power to hold her at the 
Infirmary against her will. 

Since the public goes to some expense to give these children a 
healthy start in life, and their mothers a fair chance at honest 
self-support, the State should ascertain whether these mothers and 
their children are likely to become reasonably good citizens, or 
whether they are of a type that is pretty sure to add to the public 
burden of dependency. This information it is part of the Com- 
mittee's aim to secure. Among the cases which it has been able 
to study with some thoroughness, it has found certain women in 
whom mental defect was sufficiently marked to account for their 
delinquency. Five of these women have been transferred to the 
insane department at Tewksbury, and one committed to the School 
for the Feeble-minded at Wrentham. Of these six mothers, three 
(unmarried) had had two children each: two (one married and 
one unmarried) had each had three illegitimate children. Gratify- 
ing as it is to think that these women will bear no more children, 
one must still regret that their commitment did not take place 
before they had passed their taint on to another generation. The 
Committee can as yet form no idea of the proportion of such cases 
among those that come under its notice. Until a woman has been 
committed, one cannot assert her feeble-mindedness. Yet, since 
the commitment of a high-grade defective depends to a consider- 
able extent upon the accuracy and thoroughness with which her 
past history can be studied, and since the Committee has been 
able to do such thorough study in only a small number of cases, it 
has reason to believe that further investigation will show that more 
women than has been suspected come to almshouse maternity 
wards as a result of mental defect. Investigations to this end will 
shortly be promoted by the addition of a special visitor. What has 
been thus far accomplished is in large measure owins: to the cour- 
tesy and co-operation of the superintendent and assistant superin- 
tendent at Tewksbury. 

A State that has regard for its future stability must see to it 
that obviously unfit persons shall not multiply themselves. The 
seriousness of this problem is appreciated more in England than 
here. The English have gone so far as to establish a laboratory 
of eugenics, for the study of the prevention of undesirable births 
and the assistance of the right sort of mating. Tliis part of the 
work at Tewksbury is a first step in practical eugenics.

The total appropriation for maintenance of this institution 
was $320,000, all of which was expended. Of this amount, 
$92,287.87 was for salaries, wages, and labor; all other expenses, 
$227,712.13. The weekly cost per capita was $2.55, — an in- 
crease of 2 cents over last year. Valuation of land and buildings, 
$1,039,080 ; personal estate, $427,063.86 ; total, $1,466,143.86. 

The total number of admissions and commitments for the year 
was 5,037, classified as follows : male prisoners, 3,873 ; female 
prisoners, 500; male paupers, 503; female paupers, 27; male 
insane, 134. This total exceeds the figure for 1909 by 357. The 
largest daily census was 2,588; the smallest, 2,335; average, 
2,412. Of the prison commitments, 1,440, or about 47 per cent., 
were from the various courts of Boston; 3,783, or 86.5 per cent, 
of the total, were committed for drunkenness ; 350, or 8 per cent., 
for vagrancy; 107, or 2.4 per cent., for tramping; 60, or 1.3 per 
cent., for being found idle and disorderly; and the remainder 
various. Of all these prisoners, 2,856, or 65.3 per cent., had 
been previously committed to this institution; and 790, or 18 
per cent., were returned for violation of the conditions of their 
parole. 

This last fact bears directly upon the recommendation made 
in the Board's last report, that a supervising parole visitor be 
selected, who should give his whole time to the work. The need 
for this service increases, and the Board again emphasizes its 
advisability. In connection with the work of such an officer, the 
system of parole visitors would be continued and their number 
increased. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 31 

Thougli a building accominodating 100 female prisoners was 
opened less than two years ago, the numbers of this class have 
increased so rapidly that between 60 and TO such prisoners are 
now provided for in other buildings not designed for their occu- 
pancy. The congestion in January necessitated the transfer of 
21 to the Deer Island House of Correction, and 9 to the State 
Infirmary. 

The new building for a certain " trusty '' class of prisoners, 
with accommodations for 375, is now complete, and is receiving 
its furnishings; two schoolrooms are included in its equipment. 

The following rules, a revision of the rules heretofore in force, 
were adopted l^ovember 4, 1910: — 

The State Board of Charity, upon recommendation of the Super- 
intendent of State Farm, will release on parole, from time to time, 
such prisoners as are held in custody under this act, and revoke the 
same at any time. 

This release on parole shall be upon condition that the holder of 
the permit to be at liberty does not thereafter return to his former 
habits of dissipation or vagrancy, and upon such other conditions 
as the State Board of Charity may impose; and whenever it shall 
appear to the Board that the conditions have been violated by the 
holder of the permit at any time during the maximum term for 
which he might have been held in custody, it may revoke the per- 
mit and issue a warrant for the return of the prisoner to the State 
Farm. 

Where a prisoner who has been returned for violation of the 
condition of his parole is thereafter released, such release shall 
operate as an absolute discharge, if, at the time of such discharge, 
there has elapsed since the date of his original commitment a time 
equal to the period for which he was sentenced. 

But if such prisoner, instead of having returned for violation of 
the conditions of his parole, is returned on new sentence, then his 
subsequent release shall be dealt with as above, but with reference 
only to the last commitment. 

The Board approves estimate of the trustees for maintenance 
appropriation for the current year of $331,000, viz. : salaries, 
wages, and labor, $96,000; other expenses, $235,000. 

The Board also approves a special estimate of $50,000 for the 
purpose of acquiring and building dwellings for officers, em- 
ployees, and nurses.

The total appropriation for maintenance of this institution 
was $109,000. The expenses were $106,304.36, leaving a bal- 
ance of $2,695.64. Of the sum expended for maintenance, 
$41,785.22 was for salaries, wages, and labor, and $64,519.14 
for all othei: expenses. The average net weekly cost per capita 
was $5.62, an increase of $.76 over last year. Valuation of 
land and buildings, $341,179.00; personal estate, $89,569.66; 
total, $430,748.66. 

Of the 180 boYS committed, 5 were fifteen years old, 69 four- 
teen years, 57 thirteen years, 24 twelve years, 12 eleven years, 
4 ten years, S nine years, 4 eight years, and 2 seven years. 
."Fifty-nine were committed as delinquent children, 40 for lar- 
ceny, 23 for stubbornness, 34 for breaking and entering, 8 for 
assault, 1 for vagrancy, 5 for violating rules of truant school, 1

for injury to building. 1 for receiving stolen goods, 1 for dis- 
turbing the peace, 2 for false fire alarm, 1 for burning building, 
and 4 by transfer from the State Board of Charity. 

Forty were employed when arrested, 68 were attending 
school and 72 were idle. One hundred and seven had been 
arrested before and 40 had been committed to other institutions. 
In the case of 41, other members of the family had been ar- 
rested. All but 11 had one or both parents living. Fifty- 
eight had intemperate fathers, 2 had only mothers intemperate, 
and 8 had both parents iu temperate. One hundred and fifty- 
eight were born in the United States. 20 were foreig-n born, and 
the birth-places of 2 were unknown. Of the commitments, 
55 were from Middlesex County, 22 from Suffolk, 27 Essex, 18 
Bristol. 15 Worcester, 8 Hampden, 14 Norfolk. 7 Plymouth, 1 
Barnstable, 7 Berkshire, 1 Franklin, 5 Hampshire. 

There were 398 boys in the School at the beginning of the 
official year which number decreased to 330 at the close. The 
commitments during this period were 180, as compared with 
232 during 1909 and 268 in the preceding year. 

It is difficult to ascribe the falling off in commitments to any 
one cause, but it is perhaps fair to infer that the general down- 
ward trend is due to more and better work by the probation 
system throughout the Commonwealth. When this work is 
more thoroughly systematized and efficient, greater numbers of 
boys should be enabled to keep their places in the community 
and be saved from the necessity of commitment to the School. 

This year the unfortunate suicide of a boy in the School was 
followed by a legislative investigation. The publicity in the 
press arising from this incident not only had a demoralizing 
effect on the discipline of the School, but created distrust and 
prejudice among that portion of the public which is easily led 
to believe that an investigation of this kind necessarily implies 
the existence of abuses. While the report of the committee, 
which was very thorough, showed that the officials were without 
blame for the tragedy which they deeply deplored, it is prob- 
ably true that the courts were somewhat influenced by the in- 
cident, and made fewer commitments during the remainder of 
the year. In so far, however, as it stimulated parents and 



34 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

probation officers to greater diligence in the care of their 
charges, the occurrence was not without some advantage. 

The decrease in numbers in the School has permitted smaller 
families in the cottages; the average has been reduced from 34 
to 28, thus affording greater opportunity for individual work 
and personal influence on the part of the officers. 

Another favorable result of the experience of the past year 
is the establishment of a disciplinary squad for unruly boys. 
These boys, instead of being punished corporally or placed in 
confinement, are kept steadily at work for periods varying 
according to the gravity of their offences. They are not al- 
lowed to mingle with the other boys, and are deprived of privi- 
leges and restricted in their diet to plain though abundant food. 
Arrangements are now being concluded for housing these boys 
in a cottage by themselves, thus making the segregation com- 
plete. There will be a force of officers sufficient to have con- 
tinuous oversight of the squad day and night. The scheme 
has already proved its usefulness, and since its institution sev- 
eral months ago no boy has been punished by confinement. 

The younger boys are housed in a cottage in the town of 
Berlin, and are placed out from there. Their connection with 
the main school is so remote that in many instances they escape 
whatever reproach there is attaching to a commitment to the 
School. About 50 per cent, of the boys received at Berlin 
succeed in taking their places in the community without fur- 
ther treatment. 

The average time spent in the School is 19 months, which is 
about the same as in the previous year. After a boy has earned 
his credits, he is either returned to his home, if after investiga- 
tion it proves to be one where the boy is likely to do well, or is 
placed out in some carefully selected home. He then is visited' 
several times a year by the probation department officers. This 
system is not one of irritating espionage, but is part of the plan 
to be helpful to boys who otherwise would relapse into evil 
ways throua'h inherent weakness or evil environment. Many 
graduates of the School will attest the helpfulness of this 
friendly visitation, and few who are leading upright lives will 
be found to resent it. 

The medical histories of most of the bovs when received show 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 35 

physical or mental defects; and great care is taken to have 
imperfect sight, unsound teeth, improper breathing and other 
similar conditions remedied. An addition to the hospital is 
much needed, as it is found inadequate particularly when there 
is an outbreak of contagious disease, — a situation likely to 
occur at any time, where there are so many opportunities for 
exposure. 

Additional land for farming and to furnish healthy employ- 
ment is a necessity, for which an appropriation is asked. Also, 
an appropriation for coal bunkers, in the interests of economy. 

The Board approves estimates of the trustees for mainte- 
nance appropriation for the current year of $107,800, viz. : sal- 
aries, wages, and labor, $43,800 ; other expenses, $64,000. 

The Board also approves the following special estimates of 
$23,500, viz.: for additional land, $10,000; for enlargement 
to the hospital, $12,000; for coal bunkers, $1,500.

The total appropriation for maintenance of this institution 
was $48,550. The expenses were $43,065.93, leaving a balance 
of $5,484.07. Of the sum expended for maintenance, $17,-

309.99 was for salaries, wages, and labor, and $25,755.94 for 
all other expenses. The average net weekly cost per capita 
was $8.40. Valuation of land and buildings, $95,054.77; per- 
sonal estate, $28,966.49; total, $124,021.26. 

Of the 79 boys committed, all were over fifteen years of age. 
Thirty were committed for larceny, 21 for stubbornness, 18 for 
breaking and entering, 1 for assault, 1 for vagrancy, 1 for dis- 
turbing the peace, 2 for idle and disorderly conduct, 1 for at- 
tempted larceny, 1 for trespass and larceny of fruit, 1 for 
drunkenness, 1 for running away, 1 for not reporting while on 
probation. Forty-four had been arrested before, and 24 had 
been committed to other institutions. In the case of 20, other 
members of the family had been arrested. All but 3 had one 
or both parents living. Twenty-nine had intemperate fathers, 
and 6 had only mothers intemperate. Sixty-nine were born in 
the United States, 10 were foreign born. Of the commitments, 
29 were from Middlesex County, 21 from Suffolk, 11 from 
Essex, 8 from Bristol, 1 from Worcester, 4 from Hampden, 1 
from !N^orfolk, 3 from Plymouth, 1 from Berkshire. 

At the beginning of the fiscal year there were 88 boys in 
the School ; during the year 79 were committed ; and 1 paroled 
boy was returned. Three boys were transferred to the Massa- 
chusetts Reformatory; 2 to other institutions for medical care; 
4 boys were absent without leave ; and 60 were paroled either to 
their homes or to places of employment under supervision, leav- 
ing 99 in the School at the end of the year. 

Boys from fifteen to eighteen years may be committed to the 
School, and there is present capacity for 100. Two cottages 
for 30 boys each and a building to care for 25 will be ready 
during the coming year. 

The sixty boys released on parole during the year have been 
supervised by the superintendent in some instances, by the trade 
instructors, and by one of the officers assigned to this duty 
pending the establishment of a parole department, which is now 
being planned for the coming year. While this matter has not 
been covered as systematically and efficiently as would be pos- 
sible under an established parole department, reports are on file 
of all the boys paroled, and the results are so far encouraging. 
In most cases the boys have been released to their own homes 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 37 

or to relatives who have agreed to take charge of them and find 
them employment. Others were placed in positions through 
the agency of the School. With four exceptions, all the boys 
are employed at wages ranging from $4 to $17 a week, accord- 
ing to capacity and opportunity. 

This result speaks well for the training received by the boys 
in the School, and it is confidently expected that many have 
been saved from lives of pauperism or crime by reason of their 
removal from- the community at the critical moment. 

Each boy spends seven hours a day in some branch of work 
at the School, and ample opportunity is given for daily recrea- 
tion. Regular habits of living, removal from vicious compan- 
ionship and environment, stimulation of interest in some em- 
ployment selected as suitable to his inclination and ability, 
competition with his fellows in work and play, gradually re- 
store the boy to normality, or establish this condition where it 
had not previously manifested itself. 

Each boy has the opportunity to earn his release by good 
conduct and industry, and the system of credits is so planned 
that he may be paroled in sixteen months. It is too soon to 
be sure that this period is long enough to insure the best re- 
sults. 

The industries at present established in the School are car- 
pentry, blacksmithing, painting, engineering, steam laundering, 
cobbling, cooking, tailoring and general farming. Each boy 
gives one week in every six to housework in the various cot- 
tages. 

It is the policy of the School to use the labor of the boys 
in all repair work and construction of new buildings, under 
the guidance of a mason and builder. By this method the new 
cottages, two new hen houses and an ice-house were built ; the 
old house was remodelled ; and some small buildings were moved 
and reconstructed. In addition, there was the almost con- 
tinuous repairing of old buildings. Practically all the build- 
ings and all farm vehicles have been painted during the year. 
The blacksmithing department has made new farm wagons, re- 
paired the old, and done all the iron work needed by the School. 

Pour boys are employed in the engine room, and one gi-ad- 
uate has secured a position as a result of his training and expe- 



38 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

rience^ and promises to do well in his chosen work. Three boys 
make the working clothes for the School, and one boy does all 
the shoe repairing. 

Seventy acres of land were cultivated during the year, with 
good results, and cattle, pigs and hens have been raised. In 
addition to the work entailed by these items, much grading and 
fence repairing have been done, drains have been laid, walls 
taken down or rebuilt, and a large number of apple trees 
trimmed and scraped for scales and examined for moths; tim- 
ber has been cut and land has been cleaned of brush. 

The Trustees believe that a more comprehensive plan for 
trades instruction is required, and have asked for a power plant 
and work shops, with adequate equipment. Their request also 
includes a plan for heating and lighting, a coal pocket, an in- 
dependent heating system for the remodelled cottage, a new 
cottage for 30 boys and some minor improvements. 

Provision is made for both secular and religious education. 
All the boys receive general instruction in the School according 
to their needs, and technical instruction in matters connected 
with their various occupations. The Protestant boys attend 
the Congregational Church in Shirley, the religious needs of the 
Catholics are cared for by a visiting priest, and the Jewish 
boys receive weekly instruction by a volunteer visitor. 

The health of the Institution has been generally good, each 
boy showing a gain in weight and in health during his residence. 

The Board approves estimates of the Trustees for mainte- 
nance appropriation for the current year of $48,150, viz. : sala- 
ries, wages, and labor, $21,000; other expenses, $27,150. 

The Board also approves the following special estimates of 
$124,285, viz. : for a central heating, lighting and power plant, 
$87,000 ; for an additional cottage to accommodate 30 boys, 
$22,000 ; for installation of telephone system, $500 ; for con-

years; 28 were fourteen years; 18 were thirteen years; 7 were 
twelve years, 4 were eleven years ; 1 was ten years, and 2 were 
nine years. 

On December 1, 1909. there were 267 girls in the School, 115 
were committed during the year and 123 were returned from 
places. In this period 236 were placed out, 15 transferred to 
the School for the Feeble-minded, 5 to other institutions, 1 died, 
and 1 runaway is still at large, leaving 247 in the School at the 
end of the year. 

Girls up to the age of seventeen may be committed to the 
School, and the usual length of stay is 18 months. The girls 
are trained in the domestic arts, and take courses in cooking, 
laundering, sewing, garment fitting and dressmaking. They 
also receive a degree of academic training in the class rooms, 
and have courses in sloyd, basket weaving, rug making, singing, 
drawing and nature work. 

The girls are grouped in cottages, and are classified on the 
basis of their history and character. There is an assembly hall, 
where religious exercises are held weekly and where entertain- 
ments of various kinds are given at intervals. 

During the year much attention has been given to the matter 
of specific diseases, and one cottage has been assigned to infected 
girls, who are withdrawn from contact with the healthy inmates, 
to the great advantage of the latter class. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 41 

It is characteristic of girls of the class committed to the 
School to be physically defective, as a rule ; and the same atten- 
tion is given to the correction of defective eyesight, hearing and 
breathing, nnsound teeth and other faulty conditions as is found 
necessary in dealing with juvenile delinquents in similar institu- 
tions under the care of the Commonwealth. 

There are about 60 girls who are mentally deficient, a condi- 
tion which greatly hampers the valuable work undertaken for 
normal girls. ISTot only are these defectives an embarrassment 
because of the waste of energy involved in the eifort to improve 
their condition sufficiently to warrant an attempt to return them 
to the community with safety to themselves and others, but 
their influence on the remainder of the girls is harmful. 
Though the feeble-minded are gathered into one cottage, in the 
daily life of the School, and particularly in the class room^ they 
come into contact with the other inmates, to the detriment of 
8 11. What disposition to make of these girls is a perplexing and 
urgent problem, as the Schools for the Feeble-minded, where 
they will probably be found to belong, are already so crowded as 
to make further admissions very difficult in the near future. 
The Trustees, Superintendent, and School Physician are giving 
earnest study to the problem, and it is hoped that a solution may 
soon be found, either through increased capacity in the Schools 
for the Feeble-minded, or by some other institution better 
adapted to this special class. 

As many of the girls owe their commitment to the School 
to the fact that they either have no homes, or their homes are 
of a degraded and vicious type, it becomes necessary when they 
have completed their course in the School to place them out. 
Families are carefully investigated, and much care is taken to 
place a girl among those who seem most likely to give her the 
training and moral support meeting her particular needs. 

The girls are kept under constant and systematic supervision, 
through personal visitation by a member of the probation staff, 
until they reach their majority. The visitor attempts to win 
the sympathy of the girl through her active, kindly participa- 
tion in all the girl's interests, and to encourage a truly friendly 
relation that will win her confidence. She watches the condi- 
tions surrounding the girl in the family and the neighborhood.

and guides her in her business relations and effects her transfer 
when necessary or desirable. While many discouragements are 
inevitably met in carrying on this work, the successful cases, 
where girls are restored to a respectable status in society, more 
than compensate. 

The Board approves estimates of the trustees for maintenance 
appropriation for the current year of $73,500, viz. : salaries, 
wages, and labor^ $31,500; other expenses, $42,000. 

The Board also approves the following special estimates of 
$24,000, viz. : for sewer beds, $12,000 ; for enlargement to the 
hospital, $12,000.

The total appropriation for maintenance of this institution 
was $55,000. The expenses were $52,451.72, leaving a balance 
of $2,548.28. Of the sum expended for maintenance, $21,- 
461.21 was for salaries, wages, and labor, and $23,538.79 for 
all other expenses. The average net weekly cost per capita was 
$6.10, an increase of $0.17 over last year. Valuation of land 
and buildings, $207,232.47; personal estate, $43,604.76; total, 
$250,837.23. 

At the close of the fiscal year there were 134 boys and 61 girls 
in the School^ a total of 195, and an increase of 45 in numbers 
since the beginning of the year. There were under treatment 
during the year 231 children, 80 of whom were first admissions. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 43 

2 second admissions, and 1 boy returned from a visit to his 
home, begun during the preceding year. The maximum num- 
ber during the year was 195, the minimum 136, and the daily 
average 164.85, an increase of 47.25 over last year. The aver- 
age age upon admission was 8 years and 10 months. 

During the year 36 children were discharged. Twenty-one 
of these were taken home by their parents, as there seemed little 
chance of improvement through a longer stay in the School. 
Two made complete recoveries. One girl, after nine months' 
stay, was returned to her home enabled to enter high school 
with the grammar school class, of which she had been a member 
before admission. A boy under school age will be able to attend 
the public schools when old enough. Two boys have been made 
capable of self-support by their training in the School. Three 
boys were transferred to other State institutions^ and 8 children 
died. 

Xinety children have been allowed to visit parents or friends 
during the year for varying periods, according to conditions. 
While there are certain disadvantages and risks attending this 
practice, it is believed that they are overbalanced by the bene- 
fits derived from keeping alive the responsibilities of parents 
and from the pleasure given the children through these reunions. 

The presence of ten cases of scarlet fever, all, so far as can be 
discovered, arising from different sources of infection, gives 
point to the danger of infection from lack of reception quarters 
for visitors. These number sometimes one hundred in a single 
day, and there is no place to receive them except the corridor 
adjoining the dining-room. Thus all the children are exposed. 

The infirmary, a most important addition to the School, was 
completed in April. Here new admissions are received and 
detained for observation, and if found to be infected with a 
dangerous disease are sent to the isolation cottages. The equip- 
ment contains a complete operating room, a dental room^ and 
wards for chronic bed cases. 

The industrial building, completed in the spring, houses the 
several industrial classes. In the sewing department much 
practical training in needlework and the operation "of power 
sewing machines and hand looms has resulted in benefit to the 
girls employed. Many of them are becoming adept at knitting.

crocheting and embroidering. The boys receive a course in 
slovd and manual training, leading to practical work in the 
wood-working shop for those who show inclination ; there is also 
a shoe-repairing shop and a printing shop. In addition, the 
boys are learning practical work in metals, such as pipe thread- 
ing, welding, making of splints and other surgical apparatus. 
In the domestic science cottage, started in April, a group of 
sixteen girls live and do all their own work, under the imme- 
diate direction of a matron, who instructs them in all the 
branches of household service. 

The School is in fact an air and sunlight cure, and its effect 
on patients who have been confined indoors almost entirely by 
reason of their infirmities is almost magical. Sunshine, fresh 
air, and a wholesome diet are the three requisites for the cure 
of these children, and they are liberally furnished at the 
School. 

The Board approves estimates of the trustees for mainte- 
nance appropriation for the current year of $62,600, viz. : sala- 
ries, wages, and labor, $25,910; other expenses, $36,690. 

The Board also approves special estimates of $42,000, viz. : 
for genera] utility barn, wagon shed, and root cellar, $12,000 ; 
and for an assembly hall, $30,000.

tate, $41,035.33; total, $553,100.33. The increase in valua- 
tion over last year is due to the completion of the nurses' home. 

During the year 762 patients were admitted, of whom 306 
were men and 366 women, classified as follows: incipient, 285, 
or 37.4% ; moderately advanced, 356, or 46.7% ; far advanced, 
12, or 15.7%; non-tubercular, 1. This Sanatorium has pro- 
vision for 350 patients. The daily average number cared for 
in 1910 was 340; largest daily census, 352; smallest, 323. 
Average duration of residence, 5 months and 23 days. 

Seven hundred and fifty-eight patients were discharged dur- 
ing the year, 145, or 21.84%, as apparently ^' cured;" 269, 
or 20.51%, "arrested;" 190, or 28.61%, "improved;" 60, 
or 9.03%, "not improved." Ninety-four who remained but a 
short time were not considered. There were 12 deaths. 

The number of paid officers and employees at this institution 
reaches 61% of the number of patients. As compared with 
39%^ the average proportion in the three other State Sanatoria, 
this number is abnormally high. 

The practice of examination of applicants by a paid exam- 
iner has been discontinued. Since July 15, examinations have 
been made by local physicians. Though this change has re- 
sulted in an immediate saving to the Commonwealth, the diffi- 
culties arising from incorrect diagnosis are so great as to render 
the advisability of the change doubtful. 

The nurses' home, with accommodation for 25 persons, was 
completed during the spring, and is now fully occupied. The 
addition of second floor verandas on the east side of the in- 
firmary and the construction of wards L and H have been car- 
ried out during the year. 

The estimates of the Trustees for the maintenance appropria- 
tion for the current year, of $184,000, is approved, viz. : sala-

in most instances completed. 

The appropriation of $1,500 for gradiug has been expended, 
and $1,000 more will be needed to complete the work. The 
trustees recommend the purchase of a farm, with buildings ad- 
joining the State property, as an examination by the State

FixA^^ciAL Supervision. 

The Board's financial supervision of the public charitable 
institutions during the year has been conducted along the fol- 
lowing general lines : — 

Careful analyses have been made monthly of all articles of 
food, coal, hay and grain purchased, and a statement of the 
result sent to each institution. 

Comparative tables of coal and flour purchased for the fiscal 
year ending November 30, 1909, have been made and copies 
forwarded to each institution. 

A semi-annual report of the financial conditions of the four 
sanatoria and three industrial schools has been made. 

Frequent visits to the several institutions have been made 
for the purpose of examining into details of administration and 
quality of articles purchased. Such visits are followed by sug- 
gestions, where such would be deemed helpful. 

The following tables exhibit the financial conditions of the 
institutions under the Board's supervision; they admit of a 
comparative study of maintenance cost, and average prices paid 
for food and coal.

78 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

The Couxtt Truai^t Schools. 

The law provides that the County Truant SchocJs shall be 

visited by the State Board of Education and the State Board 

of Charity, and that each of these Boards shall report on them 

annually to the General Court. The Schools are as follows : — 

Essex County Training School, Lawrence. 
Hampden County Training School, Springfield. 
Middlesex County Training School, IsTorth Chelmsford. 
iNorfolk, Bristol and Phinouth Union Training School, Walpole. 
Suffolk County Training School (Boston Parental), Eoxbury. 
Worcester County Training School, Oakdale. 

The total number committed to the Schools during the year 
ending ISTovember 30, 1910, was 267, in addition to 52 returned 
from probation; 23 having been committed as " absentees," 11 
as "school offenders," 221 as "truants," and 12 as "delin- 
quent children." The number in all the Schools iN'ovember 30, 
1910, was 642. The average number during the year was 658. 
The average age of those committed was eleven years and two 
months. The average net weekly cost per capita was $3.30. 

Each of the Schools has been visited during the year, as re- 
quired by law. 

The numbers in all the Schools, with the exception of Hamp- 
den and Suffolk, appear to keep pace with the gradual increase 
of population. In these two Schools there is a marked decline, 
due to the increasing effectiveness of the probation system ap- 
plied before commitment, and, in the case of the Hampden 
School, to the special provision now made at Spring-field for 
the schooling and discipline of difficult cases both within and 
without the public schools. 

Though all children committed to the Schools have been 
found guilty of truancy or other school offences, in many cases 
the child has a record showing far graver errors. The ques- 
tion arises whether the training school is the proper form of 
correction in such cases. The difficulties of administration 
arising from the presence of the more hardened offender appear 
most forcibly at the Suffolk School, where a large percentage 
of the boys are already known to the courts as thieves and 
pickpockets. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 79 

There is still wide variance in the application of the parole 
system bj the county commissioners controlling the several 
Schools. At the Essex School the policy is to retain the child 
as long as the law permits, over 50 per cent, remaining till they 
are sixteen. At the Worcester School he is sent into a private 
home as soon as conditions permit, and some effort is made to 
oversee and safeguard the boy's life under parole. For the 
most part the paroling of boys by these various boards does not 
show a thorough appreciation of the system, nor of the funda- 
mentals necessary to its success. 

At the Essex County School a modern school building, with 
assembly hall and an excellent swimming pool, has been added 
and is now occupied. Equipment also for a central lighting 
plant is being installed. 

At Suffolk, one new school building and one cottage remain 
vacant as a result of the falling off in commitments. 

The Hampden County School is located in a district fast 
filling up with residences.^ The land has greatly increased in 
value, so that the removal of this School from its present site 
appears to be only a matter of time. 

Description and statistics of the several Schools follow : —

not only all children who are maintained by the Common- 
wealth, but all minor children who are supported at the ex- 
pense of any city or town. Children illegally retained in city 
or town almshouses — i.e., pauper children over two years of 
age, or, if the mothers are inmates, over five years of age, and 
not defective in body or mind, who have been retained in an 
almshouse for more than two months — must be removed there- 
from and placed at board at the expense of the city or town 
concerned. (Revised Laws, chapter 81, sections 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 
43 ; Acts of 1905, chapters 285, 303.)

tween seventy and eighty; 56 between eighty and ninety; and 
3 between ninety and one hundred. For their support there 
was paid in 19 cases less than $2 per week; in 111 cases from 
$2 to $3 per week; in 102 cases from $3 to $4 per week; and 
in the remaining 67 cases — mostly of old or feeble persons — 
the rate varied from $4 to $20, according to the amount of care 
required. Of the whole number, about 54 per cent, were re- 
ported to be in good or fairly good physical condition, and 90 
per cent, in good mental condition. In all but 18 cases, or 6 
per cent., they were apparently receiving good care. There 
were 118 able to do light work, either in the house or about the 
premises. There were 69 supported in their own homes. In 
208 cases, according to the reports, the Overseers of the Poor 
complied with the law requiring them to visit the paupers at 
least once in every six months; in 21 cases they made one visit 
a year ; and in the remaining 70 cases no visits were made. 

Dependent Minor Children in Almshouses. 
Visits were made in the cases of 243 children — 119 boys 
and 124 girls — reported to be cared for by the following cities 
and towns in their almshouses : Ashfield, 2 ; Beverly, 1 ; Bil- 
lerica, 1 ; Boston, 64 ; Boylston, 2 ; Braintree, 1 ; Bridgewater,

Wrentham 1. Of these children, 83 had been removed from 
the almshouse and 8 had died before the time of visitation. Of 
the remainder, 48 were so defective in body or mind as to 
render their retention in the almshouse desirable, and 3 were 
removed after notification by the Board to the Overseers of the 
Poor that they were detained contrary to law. There were 6 
who attended school, and 15 who did more or less work.

Dependent Minor Children provided for in Families and 

Asylums. 

Of the 714 cMldren reported, by the local authorities as fully 
supported outside of almshouses on January 1, 1910^ 4 were 
unknown, 2 had died, and 93 had been removed before visits 
could be made. The remaining 615 — 344 boys and 271 girls 
— were supported by 63 cities and tovnis, as follows: Abing- 
ton, 3 ; Agawam, 3 ; Andover, 2 ; Ashburnham, 1 ; Avon, 2 ; 
Barnstable, 1; Becket, 2; Boston, 390; Brockton, 3; Cam-

pole, 10 ; Westport, 1 ; West Springfield, 5 ; Whately, 1 ; 
Whitman, 7 ; Willi amstown, 2 ; Woburn, 2 ; Yarmouth, 2. 

Of the whole number^ 74 were cared for and treated in public 
and private hospitals and asylums. There were 461 who at- 
tended school, and 170 who did more or less work. Of the 
whole number, 574 were in fairly good physical condition, and 
604 in fairly good mental condition. The price of board varied 
from less than $1 per week to $5. The Board found these 
children well cared for ; the few exceptions have been brought 
to the attention of the local Overseers. 

The Penalty in-curred by Certain Cities and Towns for 
Failure to make their Pauper Returns during the 
Month of April, 1910. 
Sections 39-42 of chapter 81 of the Revised Laws, as 

amended by chapter 115 of the Acts of 1905, are as follows: — 

Section 39. Overseers of the poor shall keep full and accurate 
records, in a form prescribed by the state board of charity, of the 



86 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

paupers fully supported, the persons relieved and partially sup- 
ported, and the travellers and vagrants lodged at the expense of 
their cities and towns and of the amount paid for such support and 
relief. 

Section 40. They shall annually in April, for the year ending 
on the last day of March, return to the state board of charity the 
number of such persons supported and relieved, the cost thereof, and 
a record of those fully supported. 

Section" 41. In the year nineteen hundred and five and in every 
tenth 3^ear thereafter the return of the overseers of the poor shall 
contain true and correct answers to such additional inquiries as the 
state board of charity may deem it advisable to make. 

Section 42. If the overseers of the poor of a city or town refuse 
or neglect to comply with the requirements of the three preceding 
sections, such city or town shall forfeit one dollar for each day's 
neglect, and the amount of such forfeiture shall be deducted from 
any amount to which said city or town may be entitled in reim- 
bursement for relief of state paupers as provided in sections fifteen 
and sixteen of chapter eighty- five; and if no such reimbursement 
shall be due to said city or town, the forfeiture shall be deducted 
from any money which may be due to it from the Commonwealth. 

Under these lav^s the Board reported to the Treasurer of the 
Commonwealth the names of the cities and towns that failed to 
make their pauper returns during the month of April, 1910, 
together with the amount of penalty incurred in each instance, 
as follows: Amherst, $11; Ashburnham, $8; Athol, $1; Biller-

Admixistratiox. 

In addition to the duties of supervision and publicity above 
given, the Board ip charged with certain duties entirely admin- 
istrative. These are chiefly grouped under tv70 heads, viz.. 
State adult poor and State minor wards. 

The administrative duties with reference to the State adult 
poor comprise the discharge of sane inmates of the State In- 
firmary and the State Farm ; the execution of laws relative to 
the release on parole of prisoners at the State Farm ; the inves- 
tigation as to settlement of persons, possibly settled, who have 
been supported, relieved, and buried by cities and towns, and of 
sane inmates of State institutions ; the directing of aid of imset- 
tled persons by cities and towns; the transfer of sane paupers 
from one institution to another; the sending of paupers to the 
places within and without the State where they belong; the 
carrying out of the provisions of the contract with the United 
States . regarding alien immigrants falling into distress and be- 
coming a public charge; and the management of the leper hos- 
pital at Penikese Island. 

The administrative duties with regard to State minor wards 
comprise the maintenance and care of delinquent, neglected, 
and dependent children coming into the custody of the Board 
through court commitment and otherwise, and the execution 
of the laws concerning abandoned infants, infant boarding- 
houses, and the licensing of lying-in hospitals. 

The State Out-Door Poor. 

Unsettled persons in distress are aided in the first instance 
by the city or town in which they are so found. For purposes

with these laws, 14,085 such notices were received during the 
official year, from 213 cities and towns, on account of 26,326 
persons, a net increase of 1,210, or about 9% per cent, over 
the previous year. Of these notices, 10,743, concerning 12,- 
157 individuals, were on account of persons too sick to be re- 
moved (including 3,080 notices, concerning 3,217 individuals, 
on account of persons sick with dangerous diseases) ; 717 no- 
tices, concerning 3,238 individuals, were for wife-settlement 
cases; and 2,625 notices, concerning 10,931 persons, were for 
temporary aid and transportation. Of the total number of no- 
tices above stated, 1,994, concerning 5,501 individuals, were 
in cases on account of which a previous notice had been received 
during the year. 

(a) Cases of Sick State Poor. 

The 10,743 notices of sick State poor were sent by 166 cities 
and towns, concerning 12,157 persons, of whom 10,793 were 
represented as being too ill to be removed. This number shows 
a net increase in the number of notices over the previous year 
of 1,450, or about 15% per cent., and, as compared with the 
official year 1907-08, an increase of 1,931, or about 22 per 
cent. The largest number of notices received in any one month 
was 1,189, in January; and the smallest, 750, in N'ovember. 
Of these, 5,838, or about 54% per cent, of the whole number 
were from the city of Boston, viz., 5,769 from the Boston City 
Hospital (including 1,534 cases of dangerous disease), 11 from 
the Board of Health, 15 from the Institutions Department, 39 
from the Boston Lying-in Hospital, and 4 on account of persons 
aided in their homes. 

The number of visits made by the officers of the Board, in 
the investigation of these 10,743 notices, was 24,997. As a 
result of these investigations, the Overseers of the Poor were 
directed to discontinue aid in 2,386 cases, — in 2,379 on ac- 
count of the recovery of the patient sufficiently to permit his 
removal to the State Infirmary, and in 7 for other reasons. 
In 297 cases aid was refused, — in 290 because at the time of 
the application the patient could have been removed without 
danger, and in 7 for other reasons. Out of the 8,403 cases 
investigated by the Visitors, settlements were found in 684, 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 89 

covering 799 persons. By order of the Board, 6 of the cases 
were sent to the State Infirmary. Among those reported as 
sick there were 973 deaths. 

(h) Cases of Dangerous Diseases. 
Of the 10,74:3 notices previously stated as received relative to 
the sick State poor, 3,080 were on account of diseases dangerous 
to the public health, and provided for 3,217 persons, of whom 
3,102 were patients. These notices were from 84 cities and 
towns; 1,006 being for cases of diphtheria, 752 for scarlet 
fever, 481 for typhoid, 427 for tuberculosis, 312 for measles, 
54 for smallpox, 21 for cerebro-spinal meningitis, 11 for ante- 
rior poliomyelitis, 7 for whooping-cough, 3 for ophthalmia 
neonatorum, 2 for leprosy, and 1 each for chicken-pox, glan- 
ders, tetanus, and varioloid. These figures show a net increase 
in the number of notices, as compared with the previous year, 
of about 26% per cent., and as compared with the year 1907- 
08, an increase of about 40 per cent. In 344 cases settlements 
were found, covering 367 persons. 

(c) Cases of Wife-seWevient. 
The number of notices received was 717, from 74 cities and 
towns, concerning 3,238 persons, of whom 434 were sick. 
These figures show a net decrease in the number of notices, as 
compared with the previous year, of 138, or 16 per cent., and 
as compared with the year 1907-08, a decrease of 426, or 
about 37^3 per cent. Of these 717 notices, 218, or about 30% 
per cent., were from the city of Boston. There were 145 new 
cases investigated by the agents of the Board, and 4 settlements 
were found. Of the 3,238 persons previously m^entioned, 2,521 
were acknowledged as settled, and as 4 settlements were found 
among the remaining 717, the whole number aided by the State 
was 713, of whom 294 were sick. The number of visits made 
in these cases was 953. As a result of the visits, the local 
authorities were advised to discontinue aid in 8 cases.

(d) Cases of Temporary Aid. 

The number of notices received was 2,625, concerning 10,931 
persons^ from 162 cities and towns. The largest number of no- 
tices received in any one month was 717, in January; and the 
smallest number 115, in May. The whole number shows a 
net decrease, as compared with the preceding year, of 102, or 
about 3%o per cent., and as compared with the year 1907-08, 
a decrease of 1,512, or about 36% per cent. Of these notices, 
227, or about 8% per cent., were received from the city of Bos- 
ton. The number of visits made under all these notices was 
3,832. There were 794 new cases investigated by the agents 
of the Board, and 156 settlements were found, covering 538 
persons. As a result of visitation, aid was discontinued in 87 
cases and refused in 18. There were 39 persons removed to 
the State Infirmary. 

During the year, bills for the transportation of 57 persons, 
amounting to $446.59, were allowed. Of these 57 persons, 4 
were sent to the Azores; 8 were sent to European countries, 
viz., England, 1 ; Finland, 1 ; Ireland, 3 ; Italy^ 3 ; 9 to Canada 
and other British Provinces; 36 to other States. 

Bills amounting to $76.23 were allowed for transportation 
of 36 shipwrecked seamen from Nantucket, Provincetovn, and 
Tisbury to Boston. 



Expenses of Support of Out-Door Poor. 
The bills examined by the Superintendent of State Adult 
Poor, on account of cases of sick State poor, wife-settlement,

Penikese Hospital. 

The appropriation for maintenance for the past year was 
$10,500. There was a deficit of $656.29, which was paid from 
the contingent fund controlled by the Governor and Council. 
The Board recommends for the year 1910-11 an appropriation 
for maintenance of $10,785. 

One new case admitted during the year brings the list of in- 
mates to 12. Their general physical condition has been fairly 
good, but in some instances the disease has made marked ad- 
vances. Past improvements and alterations now in process 
add much to the comfort of the inmates. In addition, many 
contributions of various articles have been received from inter- 
ested persons. Of these, the most noteworthy has been a gift 
of $100 from the Women's Universalist Society, for the pur- 
chase of a billiard table. The gift has been further supple- 
mented by a gift of $50 from the late Henry H. Rogers of 
Fairhaven. 

Improvements during the year include an important addi- 
tion to the hospital building, and sundry repairs, increasing 
facilities, and rendering the old cottages more habitable. In 
addition, the heating plant has been improved and better hous- 
ing for the stock has been provided. The approaches to the new 
wharf have been filled in and the boat cradle repaired. 

Due in part to the dry nature of Penikese Island, and also 
to deficiency of rainfall, the quest for fresh water at the hos- 
pital has become a problem. During the late summer and 
autunm fresh water was transported from ^ew Bedford, at an 
expense of more than $600, thus creating a deficit in the appro- 
priation for water supply. The driving of wells was begun 
early in August, but was abandoned after 140 feet of pipe had 
been driven, with only brackish or salt water as a result. It is 
now thought that sufficient water supply can be obtained by 
driving four or more pipes to a maximum depth of 35 or 40 
feet. 

Since the Board's last report, Penikese has been made a 
post-office of the fourth class, and the Superintendent's wife 
appointed post-mistress. 



94 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

The Board recommends tlie appropriation of an amount not 
exceeding $2,000 for water supply; $1,350 for the necessary 
furnishings of the new hospital building; and $15,000 for the 
dredging of a channel from the wharf to deep water, a distance 
of 650 feet. This channel will be 150 feet wide and 12 feet 
deep at mean low water. 

The Board has always regretted that public opinion forced 
these sick people away upon a somewhat distant island ; it con- 
tinues convinced that the more humane as well as economical 
way would be to care for them on the mainland. 

Children in the Care and Custody of the Board. 

By reference to the tables on pp. 100 et seq. it will appear that 
at the close of the last official year, E"ovember 30. 1910, there 
were 4,740 children in the care and custody of the Board, 319 
juvenile offenders, 2,541 neglected children, and 1,880 depend- 
ent children. There were 980 children received during the 
year, viz., 61 juvenile offenders, 488 neglected children, and 
431 dependent children. There were 745 discharged, viz., 58 
juvenile offenders, 314 neglected children, and 373 dependent 
children. Of the 4,740 children, 1,296 were in families with- 
out board, 2,637 in families with board, and 316 at the State 
Infirmary and other institutions, not penal, subject to care and 
treatment.^ 

Infants. 

The whole number of infants, or children under three years 
of age, i]^ charge of the Board, at the beginning of the official 
year, December 1, 1909, was 468 ; the number received since 
was 284; making the whole number supported by the State 752. 
There remained at the close of the official year, November 30, 
1910, 446. 

Of the 752 infants supported, 13 were legally adopted; 216 

1 In addition to these 4,740 children, the Board had under supervision and visitation, Novem- 
ber 30, 1910, 330 inmates of the Lyman School for Boys; 247 inmates of the State Industrial 
School for Girls; 582 boys and 258 girls in the custody of the Trustees of the Lj'man and In- 
dustrial Schools outside of the Schools; 131 boys and 64 girls, inmates of the Massachusetts 
Hospital School; 101 boys, inmates of the Industrial School for Boys; 66 boys and 94 girls, 
inmates of the four State sanatoria; 114 boys and 110 girls, inmates of the State Infirmary, 
who are either young infants with their mothers or else imder hospital treatment; 642 inmates 
of the county truant schools; and about 615 children supported at the expense of the cities and 
towns; making, approximately, a total of 8,094 children in the care and custody and under the 
supervision of the Board. • 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 95 

were transferred to the subdivision for children, having reached 
the age of three years; 25 were discharged to parents or rela- 
tives; 2 were discharged and placed in the Home for Desti- 
tute Catholic Children by order of the court ; 1 was discharged 
to a guardian ; 3 were discharged to place of settlement ; and 46 
died. Of the remaining 446 infants, 14 were in homes with- 
out payment for board. 

Of the 284 infants received, 90 were committed to the cus- 
tody of the Board by the Overseers of the Poor, and 8 were 
received from the State Infirmary, under the provisions of sec- 
tion 20 of chapter 83 of the Revised Laws, which provides for 
the commitment of unsettled, indigent, or neglected children 
to the custody of the State Board of Charity. Of these, 27 
were foundlings, and the others were committed as unsettled, 
indigent infants. All children received at the office in the 
State House are thoroughly examined by one of the medical 
officers; their physical condition is noted and a report is placed 
on file for permanent record. Many of the infants when re- 
ceived are undeveloped, poorly nourished, and suffering from 
neglect and improper treatment. All children who appear 
upon examination to be suffering from tuberculosis or syphilis 
are sent to the State Infirmary for treatment before being 
placed in private families. 

There were 101 received from the courts, committed under 
chapter 334 of the Acts of 1903, as amended by chapter 131 of 
the Acts of 1909, providing for the commitment of children 
under sixteen j^ears of age growing up without education or 
without salutary control, by reason of orphanage, neglect, crime, 
cruelty, insanity, drunkenness, or other vice of their parents, or 
in circumstances exposing them to lead idle and dissolute lives, 
or be dependent upon public charity. Most of these when com- 
mitted are suffering from neglect and ill treatment. Many are 
victims of acute or chronic diseases, some of which are con- 
tagious. Those suffering from acute disease of eyes or ears are 
sent at once for treatment to the Massachusetts Eye and Ear 
Infirmary; and those having severe physical deformities are 
sent to the Children's Hospital, where they are treated and 
fitted to proper surgical apparatus. 

Only 2 infants were removed under section 26 of chapter 83 



96 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

of the Revised Laws, wHch provides for the removal by an offi- 
cer of the Board of children under the age of seven years not 
under the personal care of parents or guardians and not re- 
ceiving proper care. The small number of children removed 
under this law during the year shows that under the present 
system of rigid inspection of homes where young children are 
boarded, the old practice of baby farming has practically been 
broken up. 

There were 83 received under the provisions of section 36, 
chapter 83 of the Revised Laws, authorizing the Board to pro- 
vide for the maintenance of dependent children under the age 
of sixteen years, on the application of parents, guardians, 
friends, or Overseers of the Poor. 

The medical visitors made 4,736 visits. This number in- 
cludes visits to State infants boarded in families, visits of in- 
vestigation and inspection of homes of applicants for licenses 
and for children to board, and examinations of children in the 
office. Many of the homes of applicants for children to board 
are found upon investigation to be wholly unsuitable, and in 
the case of others, the applicants, after trial, soon become dis- 
couraged, and request that the children be provided for else- 
where. On the whole, the standard of the homes utilized for 
boarding-places becomes higher each year; but in order to main- 
tain this higher standard, it is necessary to exercise constant 
vigilance and to make frequent visitations. The number of 
applications received during the year for infants to board was 
493; 47 applications were withdrawn, 209 were visited and 
approved, and 47 were visited and disapproved. 

The rate of mortality for the year for the whole number of 
children under three years supported was 6.11 per cent., the 
lowest since the boarding-out system was established, in 1880. 
Of the 752 infants supported during the year, 277 were under 
one year of age; and of these, 34 died, making the mortality 
rate of infants supported under one year of age 12.28 per cent, 
for the year. This lower mortality is due in part to the more 
favorable weather conditions of the past summer and better 
facilities for obtaining good milk. This latter has been accom- 
plished through the combined efforts of the medical profession. 
Boards of Health, and an interested public. 

A nursery is still maintained as a temporary home where 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 97 

nearly all the infants received are sent after examination in 
the office at the State House, and where they are weighed, 
given a bath, and supplied with suitable clothing, preparatory 
to being sent to a permanent boarding-place. During the year, 
270 were admitted to the nursery, none of whom died there. 

Work of the Investigating Visitors. 

In 1909, of 837 applications investigated, 185 children were 
received; in 1910^ of 955 investigated, 172 were received. That 
the proportion of those accepted during 1910 is smaller is due 
to the natural development of the work. (1) More careful in- 
quiry, made possible by the addition of a new visitor, has de- 
velope*(i in many instances relatives or other natural sources of 
assistance, so that aid from a public agency has become unnec- 
essary. (2) A sharper distinction between dependent and 
neglected children is now recognized. Formerly, in many in- 
stances where the neglect has not seemed to the judge suffi- 
ciently flagrant to warrant commitment, the children have been 
received as dependents, but experience has shown that it is 
wiser to safeguard these children in their own homes, trying at 
the same time to bring the parents to a realization of their re- 
sponsibility. Such constructive work is more effectual in the 
long run than the immediate breaking-up of the family. ( 3 ) Ap- 
plications for illegitimate children are being treated more and 
more as nearly as possible like applications for legitimate chil- 
dren. The separation of mother and child for the sake of 
shielding the mother from public disgrace has so often proved 
disastrous that it seems kinder to both mother and child to 
prevent such a separation. 

There has been a decided increase during the year of inves- 
tigations for the discharge of children. This has come about 
through the fact that the investigating visitors, who know thor- 
oughly the conditions in the home at the time the children are 
removed, can with very little further inquiry determine whether 
or not the conditions have so changed that the children may 
safely be returned. A special supervision has been developed 
in order to facilitate these discharges. When the visitor rec- 
ommends that a child be received, if she feels that it can be 
returned to the parents within six months she takes the matter 
under supervision, and from time to time calls on the family. 



98 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

each time reminding the parents that it will not be long be- 
fore the family may be reunited. These parents are encour- 
aged to visit the children frequently. They are able usually to 
pay for the partial support of their children, and at the time 
of acceptance sign an agi-eement to pay so much each week. By 
careful supervision the Board has been able during the past 
year to collect over $2,500. 

A glance at conditions in the family from which the children 
have been received will convey some idea of the scope of the use- 
fulness of this work to the community. Of 80 broken families 
noted, 48 were broken up because of illness or death. These 
48 instances may be tabulated as follows : — 

In 4 families the immediate cause of distress was the death of the 

father. 
In 8 families the cause was death of the mother. 
In 3 families the cause was death of both parents. 
In 10 families the cause was tuberculosis of mothers. 
In 4 families the cause was tuberculosis of fathers. 
In 6 families the cause was feeble-minded mothers. 
In 3 families the cause was insane mothers. 
In 10 families the children received were suffering from some permanent 

illness or physical defect. 

Of the remaining 32 families : — 

In 5 the children were endangered because of intemperance or immo- 

rahty of one parent. 
In 6 there were deserting mothers. 
In 12 there were deserting fathers. 
In 8, mothers were too incompetent to be taught to care for their 

children. 

The Overseers of the Poor throughout the State are one by 
one becoming interested in placing under the care of the Board 
the children with settlements in their town. From the fact 
that the State authorities can choose boarding homes irrespec- 
tive of locality, these children are assured better homes than 
could be procured in the tovm of settlement. An additional 
advantage is that the children are placed in the care of a trained 
visitor who understands children, and whose special work is to 
guard their welfare. The Overseers reimburse for the cost of 
board only, and from this source alone the visitors have col-

STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 



Adoptions, 

During the year the Board has received 249 applications for 
the adoption of children, coming mainly from the 'New Eng- 
land States, viz., Massachusetts, 214; Maine, 4; ISTew Hamp- 
shire, 16 ; Vermont, 3 ; Connecticut, 2 ; Rhode Island, 4 ; New 
York, 3 ; Pennsylvania, 1 ; IN'orth Dakota, 1 ; and Canada, 1. 
All^ with the exception of 23, were made directly, either in 
writing or personally by the applicant. These 23 were made 
through the agency of "' child-helping " societies, and, with two 
exceptions, the homes offered did not prove, ujdou investigation, 
to be suitable. These two homes were approved and supplied 
with children. 

One hundred and thirty homes have been investigated, of 
which 79 were approved and 51 found unsatisfactory. Forty- 
two applications were withdrawn and 58 are now pending, the 
investigations not yet completed. Many applications were re- 
jected without investigation because of their obvious undesira- 
bility. Permanent homes through legal adoption have been 
secured for 56 children, 18 boys and 38 girls; in Massachusetts, 
49 ; Maine, 1 ; New Hampshire, 3 ; Rhode Island, 1 ; IN'ew 
York_^ 1 ; and Indiana, 1. The youngest child adopted was a 
little girl one year old, and the oldest a boy of seventeen. At 
the end of the year 35 children, viz., 12 boys and 23 girls, re- 
mained in approved homes, on trial for adoption. 

The following tables, concerning the several classes of the 
Board's children, are self-explanatory : —

Lying-in Hospitals. 

In conformity with the provisions of chapter 569 of the Acts 
of the year 1910, which may be found on page 15 of this re- 
port, 105 licenses were granted to establish and keep for two 
years lying-in hospitals in 55 cities and towns. Fifty-three of 
these were granted to corporations, 26 to physicians, 22 to 
nurses, 3 to masters of almshouse hospitals, and 1 to a lessee of 
a hospital, — all of which remain in force. Two physicians 
were refused a license. 

Regulations, adopted July 1, 1910, were revised Xovember 
4, 1910, to read as follows: — 

Regulations for Lying-in Hospitals. 

1. Every licensee shall keep a record of the correct name and 
residence of every patient received, and of every birth and death 
under his care. He shall make prompt and complete returns of 
every such birth and death as required by law. He shall use due 
diligence to prevent any deception as to his patient's identity, and 
to that end shall refuse to receive any patient who refuses to give 
the necessary information required for such returns; unless the case 
is one of emergency, and, in such case, if the patient has not, before 
the fourth day after her delivery, given such satisfactory informa- 
tion, he shall forthwith report the facts of such case to the State 
Board of Charity. 

2. Every licensee shall act in conformity with the provisions of 
the laws of this Commonwealth for the protection of infants. He 
shall not be concerned in, encourage, or permit upon his premises 
any unlawful disposal of such infant, or other arrangement whereby 
such infant shall be deprived of any of his legal rights or to be 
abandoned to become a charge upon the Commonwealth. This rule 
shall not be construed to prevent any licensee from giving his 
gratuitous assistance to his patient in placing her infant in a

After Careers of Minor Wards of the Massachusetts 
State Board of Charity.^ 

What becomes of the minor wards who, after being placed 
out in families, have been discharged from the care of the 
Massachusetts State Board of Charity? Are they peaceful, 
law-abiding citizens, respected by their families and their neigh- 
bors, or are they to be found in prisons and reformatories? 
Have they struggled upward into the ranks of skilled laborers, or 
even into the professional classes, or are they recruits in the 
army of the unskilled ? Have they become assimilated into the 
communities where placed ? Have they returned to parents or 
relatives, or wandered off, to sever connection with them en- 
tirely ? These are some of the questions to which an answer has 
been sought in the present inquiry. 

This study has not been made as a test. of the placing-out 
system nor as a general measure of the success of the State 
Board's methods in caring for its wards. Such an ambitious 
project is at present impracticable. If trees are known by their 
fruits, child-caring agencies should study thoroughly what be- 
comes of the children who have been in their care. At present, 
however, no adequate studies exist for comparison between the 
after careers of children cared for in institutions and those 
placed out with private families. Moreover, no information is 
obtainable concerning the subsequent histories of children from 
similar classes in the community, brought up by their own fam- 
ilies. Even if such comparison were possible, the group of 
wards here considered is so small that generalization is impos- 
sible. ^Nevertheless, even a study of so small a group may sug- 
gest questions of policy for child-caring work, or may emphasize 
the need for the careful study of particular problems. 

The young men and women here considered were wards of 
the State during a period extending from 1881 to 1900. They 
were discharged by the Massachusetts State Board of Charity 
in 1898, 1899, or 1900. These years were selected in order 
that the wards might have been discharged recently enough to 

1 This report has been made by the Research Department maintained at the Boston School 
for Social Workers with the aid of the Russell Sage Foundation. The information on which it 
is based was collected by Miss Mabel C. Rhoades, Ph.D., and Miss Amy Woods, who were made 
special agents of the Massachusetts State Board of Charity for this particular purpose. 



120 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

be traced without too much difficulty, and at the same time 
might be old enough to be sufficiently settled in life. One of 
those included in the study was received in 1881, and about 
22 others during the next two or three years, but about three- 
fifths of the 240 studied were received since 1888. 

What was the general policy of the Board in caring for these 
wards during this period ? Those of the group selected who 
came earliest to the care of the State were admitted as minor 
wards during the period of transition from the institutional to 
the placing-out system. The State Primary School at Monson^ 
where the wards received institutional care, was not abolished 
when the placing-out system was introduced, but was continued 
until 1895. The School served as a temporary home for neg- 
lected and dependent children during the interval while arrange- 
ments were being made for placing them with private families. 
A belief existed that juvenile offenders needed the more formal 
restraint of custodial care in the State Primary School, and 
could not be successfully kept in family homes. A strong ten- 
dency was therefore shown to keep them wholly within that in- 
stitution. E'evertheless, all of those in the group here consid- 
ered were placed out during part of the time. 

The placing-out policy of the State Board during the period 
was briefly as follows. Babies were boarded in the vicinity of 
Boston, where they could receive continuous medical attention. 
They were visited four times a year by women regularly em- 
ployed as agents of the State. Materials were provided by the 
State, and the women who boarded them made the clothes. 
Medical care was given by a local physician, and paid for by the 
State. Until 1895 children between three and ten were boarded, 
usually 4 in a family, in districts easily accessible to- the public 
schools. In 1895 the age at which children were transferred 
from boarding to free homes was raised to twelve years. The 
change came in consequence of an investigation of 95 boys, 
wards of the State, chosen at random from among those between 
ten and fourteen, who within three years had been placed with- 
out board. Only 7 of these, it was found, had ^' received and 
were in a way to receive the thirty weeks of schooling required 
by law." 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 121 

As the children reached the self-supporting age, they were 
placed in homes where, while being allowed to attend school, 
they could yet render services to pay for their board and clothes. 
Six-sevenths* of the wards here studied spent the maximum part 
of their time in such free homes. The boys when placed in 
free homes were transferred to the care of men visitors, who 
were required to visit them semi-annually. When a boy be- 
came fourteen, arrangements were made by which, if he re- 
mained in one family until eighteen years of age, he was to 
receive from his employer $50 and two suits of clothes. The 
boys were naturally placed in the agricultural districts of Xew 
England, where there was a demand for farm labor. 

On the other hand, the older girls were more readily located at 
housework in the suburbs of the larger cities, or in the less re- 
mote parts of the towns and villages. After fourteen, they 
worked for wages, starting at the rate of $1 per week, with an 
increase as the girl's efficiency developed, sometimes to $2.50, 
but rarely ever more. One-fourth of v^hatever a girl earned was 
sent to the State House, to be placed in the savings bank for her 
own use when discharged, and the equivalent of the other three- 
fourths was supposed to be given to her by her employer in the 
form of clothing. The girls remained under care of the Board 
until twenty-one, and were supervised by volunteers living in 
the vicinity, who were appointed annually as auxiliary visitors, 
reporting to a paid official of the Board. The same general 
plan is carried out to-day, with certain amplifications. 

For various reasons, only 240 out of 935 minor wards, dis- 
charged during the period from 1898 to 1900, are considered 
in this study. Thirty had died, 45 were discarded because 
transferred to reform schools, 22 because sent to the De- 
partment of Outdoor Poor, and 35 because technically dis- 
charged. 'Nine others, who were not twenty-one at the time of 
interview, were omitted from the study as not comparable with 
the other wards selected, over three-fourths of whom were be- 
tween twenty-six and thirty-two years of age. Another group 
of 394 was excluded either because the wards were adopted, 
because they were not placed out at all, or because their expe- 
rience under the placing-out system was too short to have exer-

cised much influence on their after careers. Twenty-nine have 
died since discharge. In addition, 131 were not traced, or only 
partially traced. The after careers of the remaining 240 minor 
wards are considered in the following pages. 

All of the wards selected were under the care of the State 
at least three years, about 61 per cent, from six to ten years, 
and 31 per cent, from eleven to eighteen years. The average 
period under care was nine and five-tenths years. Each ward 
was placed for a time in a family other than its own. About 
28 per cent, were so placed out during the entire period of care. 
Of the remaining 174, nearly all, about 92 per cent., were part 
of the time on probation to parents^ 41 per cent, were also tem- 
porarily in the State Primary School, and a small proportion, 
8.6 per cent., in almshouses and reformatories. Adding to- 
gether the time spent in selected families and on probation to 
parents, all of the 174 except 2 had family life for at least three 
years, and were subject to visitation by agents of the State 
Board of Charity.^ 

Throughout the study the wards have been divided into three 
groups, according to the usual classification, — dependents, neg- 
lected, and juvenile offenders. The first grou.p includes or- 
phans, foundlings, and those whose parents, through poverty, 
sickness, or death, are unable to support them. The second 
group, the neglected, is committed by the courts to the care of 
the State Board because of the vicious character of the home. 
The juvenile offenders are committed by the courts because of 
various juvenile delinquencies. 

The three groups differ not only according to reasons for ad- 
mission to care, but also according to the age at which the chil- 
dren were received. Many of the dependents were foundlings, 
or were surrendered to the State during infancy. Slightly over 
one-half were received before the age of eight. Most of them 
continued to be minor wards until they attained manhood or 
womanhood. On the other hand, 76 per cent, of the ne<2:lectcd 
and all of the juvenile offenders were over seven years of age 
when admitted, and 63 per cent, of the juvenile offenders were

ten months.

over ten years. The dependents were also State minor wards 
for a much longer period than those in either of the other two 
groups, as is shown by the following table : —

Of the dependents, 55 per cent, were under care from eleven 
to eighteen years, while 69 per cent, of the neglected and 96 per 
cent, of the juvenile offenders were State minor wards for less 
than ten years. 

A much larger proportion of dependents than of either of the 
other two groups was placed out with families other than their 
own throughout the entire period of care. J^early 65 per cent, 
of the dependents were under the placing-out system during the 
whole time that they were State wards. Only 14 per cent, of 
the neglected were placed out during the whole time. The 
proportion of the juvenile offenders was smaller, — only about 
5 per cent. 

The proportion of the former wards in each of the three 
groups who were in the State Primary School, on probation 
to parents, and in almshouses and reformatories, was as

STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 



Most of the dependents who were not placed out during the 
entire period of care were for a time in the State Primary 
School. Only 1 was on probation to parents and only 2 in an 
almshouse or reformatory. The proportion of the neglected in 
the State Primary School was three times as great as of the 
dependents, and is even larger for the juvenile offenders. In- 
deed, all except 8 out of the 67 juvenile offenders were in the 
State Primary School for a time. A larger per cent, of the 
juvenile offenders than the others were also in almshouses and 
reformatories. 

Of the 17-1: wards placed out during only part of the whole 
period of care, the dependents and neglected speht a much larger 
proportion of the time placed out with families other than their 
own than the juvenile offenders, as is indicated by the follow- 
ing table : —

1 Since wards who were placed out were also under at least one other form of care, the sum 
of the items exceeds the figures in the total column. 



The dependents and the neglected spent about four-fifths of 
their time placed out; the juvenile offenders only 40 per cent., 
or about half as long. The larger part of the time of the juve- 
nile offenders was spent on probation with parents, on the aver- 
age about four out of the seven and three-tenths years of care. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 125 

The dependents spent most of their time, when not placed out, 
in the State Primary School, on the average about two out of 
nearly eleven years. 

In making the study, information concerning wards after 
their release by the State was obtained by letter or personal in- 
terview. Whenever possible, an effort was made to secure in- 
formation from more than one source. In about 59 per cent, 
of the cases more than one source was consulted, and in 22 per 
cent, more than two, usually three or four. For 2 wards in- 
formation was obtained from five sources, and for 1 other, from 
seven. 

Wives, parents, and other relatives compose a larger group of 
sources than any other, about one-fourth of all those used. Hus- 
bands were never questioned regarding wives, though one volun- 
teered information. The men who had formerly been State 
minor wards were frequently away at work when the visit was 
paid to the home. The wives were usually found, and when 
questioned gave information that proved reliable. They were 
consulted in 4 per cent, only of the 521 sources used.^ This 
percentage is smaller than it might have been because it was 
sometimes known that a wife was unaware of the fact that 
her husband had been a State ward, and the investigators re- 
spected the man's sensitiveness. Parents were consulted 
almost as infrequently as wives, and it was from other relatives 
that information was more commonly obtained. Next to rela- 
tives, the foster parents with whom the ward was placed were 
the ones most frequently interviewed. They constituted 22 per 
cent, of all the sources. The wards themselves compose 18 per 
cent, of the 521 sources, and official records were consulted 
about the same number of times. Those who had employed the 
wards since their release were questioned in cases where there 
could be no danger of injuring the former ward's reputation. 
In fact, none of the present employers, and fev/, if any, since 
the ward's release from the State care, were questioned at all 

1 The percentages given in this and the following statement are based on 521 sources of 
information used for 275 minor wards, including 35 partly traced cases, not considered in the 
rest of the study. Much the same sources of information were consulted for these partially 
traced as for the others, and the percentages are undoubtedly approximately correct for the 240 
former wards here considered. 



126 



STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 



without the ward's express permission. The official visitors, 
many of them now difficult to find, were consulted in rare in- 
stances, because they had usually lost all trace of the former 
ward, and knew nothing about his present manner of life. 

Present Relation ivitli Relatives and Foster Parents. 
The normal relationship between most of these wards and 
their relatives was interrupted by the State, and an opportunity 
for a new relationship offered to them. To what extent has the 
connection with relatives been re-established ? To what extent 
has the new relationship offered by the State been maintained ? 
Have these wards remained in any of the localities where the 
State placed them ? The answer to these questions is given in 
the following table : —

Many of the wards did renew contact with their o\\ti people. 
At the time of the inquiry, 15 per cent, of the total were living 
with relatives and 33 per cent, more were in touch with them; 
about one-half maintained no relationship with relatives. In 
34 cases, however, at the time of admission either both parents 
were dead, or one parent was dead and the other had deserted 
the child, or the child was a foundling. Since then others in 
this group have probably lost their relatives by death. 

On the Avhole, the boys have tended to keep in touch with 
relatives slightly better than have the girls. Juvenile offenders, 
received by the State because of waywardness, and frequently 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 127 

having both parents living, have returned to, them or main- 
tained relationship with them in 64 per cent, of the cases, a 
larger proportion than either of the other two groups. The 
neglected commonly had both parents living, but the State took 
care of them because of bad home conditions, and thev were 
returned only when the home conditions improved sufficiently. 
JSTearly one-half have maintained some relationship with par- 
ents or relatives. Only 33 per cent, of the dependents have 
kept in touch or are living with relatives. Of course, in this 
group are many orphans and foundlings. Xevertheless, one 
wonders if the proportion of former dependents who have main- 
tained their relationship with parents could not by some means 
have been made larger. 

The genuineness of the feeling which developed during the 
ward's stay with the foster parents may be judged somewhat 
by the intimacy existing between them ten years after dis- 
charge. The feeling between the two was often as warm as 
if there were a blood relationship. Six per cent, of the wards 
were living with foster parents in 1909. Whereas relatively 
more boys than girls have hunted up their relatives, the girls 
have continued the intimacy with their foster parents more 
often than have the boys. 

Intimacy with foster parents is maintained most often by the 
dependent and neglected wards, probably because they were 
under care longer and were more completely separated from 
their own people. ^NTot one juvenile offender was living with 
a foster parent in 1909, and but 13 per cent, of this class had 
retained any relationship with foster parents. Happily, less 
than one-third of the total number of wards are reported as 
having lost touch with both foster parents and relatives. Of 
the wards discharged from 1898 to 1900 who were excluded 
from this inquiry because they were untraced, one-third were 
juvenile offenders and something over one-third were neglected. 
In other words, a large portion of the groups which are less 
apt to retain their relationship with foster parents has of neces- 
sity been excluded. 

In a total of 23 children of illegitimate parentage, only 3 
were found living with, and 1 other in touch with, the mother. 



128 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

The new policy of keeping the illegitimate mother and her child 
together had not then been established. To-day, in all proba- 
bility, this large number of illegitimate children would never 
have come under the care of the Board. 

Fifteen per cent, of the 240 wards are not only in touch with 
foster parents, but they have also been assimilated into a com- 
munity in which they were placed by the State. Among those 
not so assimilated, 22 per cent, were found at the time of the 
inquiry in the locality from which the State took them at the 
beginning of care. In other words, approximately two-thirds 
of the 240 wards neither returned to their relatives nor re- 
mained in a community in which they were placed. Add to 
these the large proportion of the 131 excluded from the study 
because only partially traced or wholly untraced, most of whom 
have wandered off, and the percentage of the wanderers is even 
higher. Undoubtedly, many of these, like so many progressive 
young men reared in the country, sought occupations not found 
in the rural communities where they were placed. At the time 
of the interview approximately 60 per cent, of 205 wards 
whose place of residence was known were located in cities of 
over 15,000 population.^ A slightly larger percentage of boys 
than girls are found in these cities. 

Economic Position of Former Wards. 
The economic position which the former wards have attained 
is not necessarily the sole test nor perhaps even the best test 
of true success, l^evertheless, as measured by wages and occu- 
pation it is one of the most definite tests, at least when correct 
facts can be obtained. Definite information as to weekly earn- 
ings was not, indeed, secured from all wards. Moreover, the 
information obtained was probably sometimes incorrect, because 
of the tendency of the wards to lay emphasis on the more skilled 
occupations and maximum wages; because of the necessarv 
dependence upon frail human memory for events of some years 
ago; because when the ward could not be seen personally, the 
description of the kind of work done was sometimes insufficient 
for a uniform classification.

Massachusetts on the census of 1900.

Definite information as to weekly earnings was not se- 
cured from all wards. The data, though incomplete, furnish 
some indication of their economic position. Of the 177 male 
wards, 31 were employed either on farms or in the army or 
navy. The farm laborers frequently received $18 per month, 
and board and lodging. Those in the army and navy, during 
the first enlistment were paid $15 to $21 per month, with board 
and clothing. 'No comparable information relative to wages 
was obtained for 55 others in scattering occupations. The 
earnings of over one-half of the males for whom a satisfactory 
classification is possible are shown in the following table : —

The median weekly wage ^ of the 91 male wards, 53 per 
cent, of whom are married, is $12. The median for all male 
wage earners and salaried employees in Massachusetts, includ- 
ing children, cannot be exactly obtained, but is somewhere be- 
tween $12 and $15 a week.^ An average of less than $10 a 
week was earned by 13 of the 91 men. The largest group, 
approximately 46 per cent, of the total, are earning between 



1 The wages tabulated above were those earned at the time of the interview for a majority 
of the 91 wards. In a few cases, when the ward was ill or out of work at the time of the visit, the 
wages in the last occupation were taken. For about 20 wards whose earnings in the present or 
last occupation were not obtained, the last known wage, usually received at a recent employ- 
ment, was entered. That this inclusion does not materially alter proportions in the above 
table is indicated by the following percentages, based upon the 71 cases whose last wage is known: 
less than $10, 9.9 per cent.; $10 or over, but less than $15, 46.5 per cent.; $15 or over, but less 
than $20, 21.1 per cent.; $20 or over, 22.5 per cent.

it as below it.

$10 and $15 per week. The economic position of the 36 men, 
approximately 40 per cent, of the 91, who, ten years after dis- 
charge, earn $15 or over a week, is higher. The men receiving 
$20 or more are chiefly those employed in skilled trades. The 
maximum salary was paid to a man working on bridge con- 
struction. He received $36 a week. An average weekly wage 
of $19.23 is equivalent to $1,000 a year, and 18 wards were 
earning at least that amount. 

The occupations in which these wages were earned vary 
widely, not only for different individuals but also for the same 
individual at different times. A complete list of occupations 
was undoubtedly not obtained in every case. In the following 
list, based on 159 male wards,^ no attempt has been made, 
therefore, to classify according to the chief occupation, but all 
kinds of work that each ward had ever done were included. It 
shows the different kinds of occupations and the number of 
times each occupation was entered. Soldiers and sailors are 
not included in the list, but are discussed in a group later. All 
of those who have been in the army or navy have engaged in 
other kinds of work, and their other occupations are entered 
below. Those in professions are also not included, but are con- 
sidered separately.

1 The occupations of 9 wards were not obtained chiefly because these men had been for some 
time under institutional care. 

2 One each in the following trades: aliner of typewriters, barber, bookbinder, mason, photog- 
rapher, sheet metal worker, steel engraver, steam fitter's helper. 

2 In 22 of these cases only the name of a firm was given. The very I ow wages earned indicated 
that the work was unskilled. The others are definitely known to be unskilled occupations. 



Part L] GENERAL WORK OF THE BOARD. 131 

Three persons are listed twice in the foregoing skilled trades, 
so that but 51 different persons, or 32 per cent, of the total, ■ 
have the asset of a skilled occupation at their command. Ex- 
cept in a few cases, the ward probably received no part of the 
training in his trade before he left the care of the State, and 
it is encouraging that a little more than one person in four had 
sufficient determination and foresight after leaving the care of 
the State to undergo the apprenticeship necessary to become a 
skilled workman. These are the men included in the higher 
wage groups previously shown. 

The group of 281 unskilled occupations were engaged in by 
108 persons, 68 per cent, of the total. None of them has ever 
learned a trade. During the ten years since their discharge, 
they have been drifting about in the economic world, until, at 
an average age of twenty-eight or twenty-nine years, they have 
still only the qualifications for unskilled work. The extent to 
which they have shifted from one kind of work to another is 
marked in many cases. One man, for example, has been en- 
gaged in the following occupations : factory worker, laborer on 
tunnel excavation, oiler on steamboat, brakeman, and teamster; 
another has been cabin boy, saw mill worker, farm hand, and 
teamster; a third, a farm laborer and a section hand; a fourth 
is briefly but suggestively reported as doing '^ odd jobs." Men 
who have been engaged in four or five unskilled occupations 
during the period are common ; four have been engaged in seven 
occupations. Thirty-nine have been farm laborers during part 
of the time since discharge. 

Twenty- five individuals were found to have entered the 
United States army or navy. The number is probably larger 
than it would otherwise be because one of the years during 
which the wards were discharged w^as the year of the Spanish 
War. Some have enlisted several times, though the enlistments 
have u?ually been brief. Only 8, according to the record of 
their present or last known occupation, are now soldiers or 
sailors. The wandering life of the navy has had the stronger 
call, since 6 out of the 10 entering it are there at present, while 
but 2 of the 15 who entered the army are still enlisted. 

There are 9 former wards not yet considered ; 4 have entered

professions/ one of them graduating from a State university. 
Two own the farms upon which they work ; and 3 others own 
the business to which they give their time.- 

Of the 63 female wards, 68 per cent, are married and are 
engaged in household work. What have been the occupations, 
outside the home, for the single women and for the others be- 
fore their marriage? Concerning 21 there is no industrial 
record other than that indicated by the statement ^' living at 
home." Of the remaining 42, including 22 of the married 
women, the largest single group is 17, who have done only the 
work of domestics in private homes, or in hotels and restau- 
rants. Seven girls have worked only in factories, 3 others have 
vacillated between factory work and housework, and 3 others, 
after attempting higher grades of work, fell back into one of 
these two groups. In other words, 30 girls out of the 42 are 
in household service or are engaged at manual labor. The 
wages of the factory group range between $6 and $10 a week ; 
and since the girls in domestic service receive their board or 
lodging or both, one group seems about as well off as the other. 
The earnings of these girls are probably about as high as the 
average for women in the State, since only 14.4 per cent, of the 
38,797 females employed in Massachusetts in 1905 were earn- 
ing over $10 per week.^ 

A higher grade of work has been attempted by the remaining 
12. Xursing, dressmaking, ' millinery and stenography each 
occupy 2 former wards.* One woman in this group earned $18 
a week, and another is receiving $16 a week. One woman is 
running a fruit store, and conservatively states that she is 
" making a living." 

The State Board attempted to carry out the State law re- 
quiring school attendance until the wjird was fourteen years of 
age. The provisions regarding schooling were, however, en- 
forced with much greater difficulty for those in free homes than 
those in boarding homes. Until 1895 the wards were trans- 
ferred to free homes as early as ten years of age, and after 
1895 at twelve years of age. Of the group studied, 58 per

cent, were between ten and sixteen years when received by the 
State. Under the regulations then existing, they were, there- 
fore, too old to receive much schooling while under State care. 
Their conversation and their letters show that many of them 
are illiterare. A large majority of the wards speak of the 
handicap which the lack of education has been to them, and 
many men feel that they should have had an opportunity to 
learn a trade. Doing odd jobs on the farm and other work 
in the rural districts, Avhere so many of these wards were placed, 
has availed them but little, since, as has already been brought 
out, so many of them have drifted into the cities, and are 
engaging in occupations of city dwellers. 

Character of Former ^Yards. 

Any classification of character, particularly when based upon 
a third person's judgment, is illusive, and so cannot be set down 
according to hard and fast terms. For this reason 224 wards, 
about whom more or less definite information was obtained, 
were divided according to character into three elastic groups. 
Under the heading " Favorably Criticized " are included all 
those about whom definite favorable statements were made re- 
garding personality and habits by those whose opinion was con- 
sidered reliable. Under the heading " Unfavorably Criticized " 
come those against whose character some definite statements 
were made which would lead to the assumption that they were 
not up to the community's moral standard. " Criminal Rec- 
ord " includes those with definite court record, or those who 
have been under custodial care. 

The moral character of 224 men and women at the time when 
interviewed is indicated in the following table : —

The criticism concerning about three-quarters of the wards 
was favorable. When we remember that 69 per cent, of the 
167 former wards receiving favorable criticism are married, 
and that 22, or 15 per cent, of these are men earning $15 a 
week or more, we get a definite picture of the highest type of 
citizen among those studied. About 20 per cent, of the above 
224 were unfavorably criticized by the persons interviewed. 
The nature of this unfavorable comment varied widely. Some 
were merely designated as " unreliable." One is declared to 
be a ^' spendthrift." A number were declared intemperate, 
others mentally weak, some immoral or licentious. Those with 
a criminal record compose 5 per cent, of the 224 former wards. 
Four of them were charged with burglary and another with 
larceny. In 4 cases drunkenness was the sole or chief offence. 
One was arrested and forced to marry. In addition to the 224 
wards in the above table, 13 were in almshouses and 1 in an 
insane asylum. 

The girls included in the above table have apparently a some- 
what higher grade of character than the boys. About four- 
fifths of them, or 7 per cent, more than the boys, received 
favorable criticism ; in other words, they are safely established 
in the life of their community, self-respecting and respected. 
!N'one of the girls had criminal records, but it must be remem- 
bered that the wrong-doing of the girls has been chiefly immo- 
rality, — an offense not reachable by law. Six of the 10 girls 
unfavorably criticized were declared to be living immoral lives 
at the time of the study. Of 2 others with illegitimate children, 
1 is not now immoral and the other is a border-line case of feeble- 
mindedness. Since some of the girls thought to be immoral 
have been traced with great difficulty or not at all^ the propor- 
tion of those unfavorably criticized, which is slightly lower than 
for the boys, is probably less than it would otherwise be if all of 
the girls selected for study had been found. 

The character of the wards differs according to the conditions 
which caused them to be placed under care of the Board, namely, 
dependency, neglect, and juvenile delinquency.

The present character of the former dependents is better than 
that of the other two groups. The record of the juvenile of- 
fenders is the worst. A smaller proportion of them has been 
favorably criticized than either the dependent or neglected, and 
a larger proportion received unfavorable criticism or had a bad 
record. 

^ot only did fewer dependents receive unfavorable criticism, 
but the nature of the criticism was not so serious as for the other 
groups. The charges against them are not so very serious, ex- 
cept in the case of 1 man who deserted his wife. For 3 of them 
also the outlook is hopeful, since they are declared to be going 
up hill rather than down. " Intemperance " figures somewhat 
prominently in the careers of the former neglected and delin- 
quent boys. Three are said to be mentally weak. Seven of 
these who were once juvenile offenders are '' unreliable," and 
1 of the wards who had been neglected is declared to be li- 
centious. 

The superior moral character of the former dependents may 
be attributed in part to the early age at which they were re- 
ceived by the Board. They were less affected by early bad 
environment, less demoralized by parents, if the latter happened 
to be vicious. The juvenile offenders, with their tendency to 
waywardness, would naturally turn out badly in a larger pro- 
portion of cases than either of the other groups. They became 
wards of the State much later in life than the others, and re- 
mained under care a shorter time than the neglected or depend- 
ents. About 40 per cent, of the period of care was spent on 
probation with parents amid their old surroundings. The 



136 



STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 



boys who ran away to their homes were allowed to stay, and 
others who could not be satisfactorily placed in some family 
were returned to parents as a last resort. Children on proba- 
tion to parents were supposed to be visited as often as others, 
but the fragmentary comments in the records make it appear 
doubtful whether the visitor kept in as close touch with them as 
with others who were placed out. ^N'evertheless, in spite of 
these handicaps, slightly over two-thirds have turned out w^ell. 

The neglected are committed to the care of the Board be- 
cause of the evil character or cruelty of their parents, so they 
are probably of more degenerate origin than either of the other 
groups.^ They were older than the dependents when they be- 
came wards, and therefore were longer under bad home influ- 
ences. To these facts may perhaps be ascribed the lower pro- 
portion of men and women with good characters among the neg- 
lected than among the dependents. 

A strikingly large proportion of the former wards has over- 
come the handicap of degenerate parentage and bad home en- 
vironment. Of the 86 wards ha\ing one or both parents un- 
favorably criticized, or with a criminal record, 82.6 per cent, 
were declared to be of good character at the time of the study. 
The proportions are almost identical for those with one bad 
parent and those with two. The exact percentages are as 
follows : —

There were 13 w^ards with both parents having criminal rec- 
ords. The number is too small for any definite statement as 
to character. Yet it is suggestive that 12 of the 13 so handi- 
capped by inheritance are men and women of good reputation. 

1 Unfortunately, information regarding the parents of those in the dependent group was 
obtained in very few instances. Moreover, a record would more naturally be kept of the worst 
rather than of the best cases. Comparison between the two groups is, therefore, impracticable. 
The data for the neglected and juvenile offenders are much more complete. They show that 
the parents of 89 per cent, of the neglected and 64 per cent, of the juvenile offenders had criminal 
records, or some faults of character.

arrival in the United States, and whose deportation is ordered by 
the Department on a finding that they have become public charges 
from prior existing causes, such accommodation and care shall be 
provided from the date the party of the second part is notified by 
the party of the first part that such an alien has become a public 
charge until deportation is effected by the party of the second part, 
all within the period of three years after the admission of such alien 
into the United States. 



138 STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

2. To transport to and receive into said hospitals or institutions 
the above classes of aliens, and there, or at their places of residence 
or abode in case of danger to life or public health if removed there- 
from, for the compensation stated in paragraph " 4 " hereof, render 
to them such medical or surgical and other treatment and care as 
the nature of each case may properly require. 

3. To notify the party of the second part, through the Commis- 
sioner of Immigration at the Port of Boston, Massachusetts, when 
each alien within the classes hereinbefore described begins to re- 
ceive such aid; such notice to contain the following information 
regarding each such alien : Name in full, age, country of nativity, 
rate, date of entry into the United States, name of institution or 
address at which aid is being rendered, date of beginning of such 
aid, and, in the cases of aliens arriving at the ports of the United 
States, the name of the ship and port of entry, or, in the cases of 
aliens arriving at ports of territory adjacent to the United States 
and later entering the United States, the name of the ship and port 
and date of arrival at such port, and the place and method of en- 
try into the United States if ascertainable. No notice furnished 
under this paragraph shall relate to more than one alien, and each 
notice shall show the name and address of the alien's relatives or 
friends, if any, and be accompanied by an unequivocal certificate, 
signed by the principal medical officer of the institution or place 
where such aid is rendered, or other medical official who has exam- 
ined the alien, containing such information as may be called for 
by the form or forms of medical certificate furnished or required by 
the party of the second part, supplemented by a brief of the alien's 
history as obtained by the party of the first part. 

4. To render to the party of the second part certified statements 
and vouchers in duplicate, on such forms as the party of the second 
part may provide or require, for all the necessary expenses in- 
curred by the party of the first part in carrying out the provisions 
hereof in the cases of all such aliens whose period of care shall 
terminate during any previous month, at the following charges: 
In cases of non-contagious diseases the charge shall be not more 
than seventy-five cents per day for each alien so received and cared 
for, but if such an alien shall receive such care for seven or more 
consecutive days, the charge shall be at a rate of not more than 
five dollars per week; in cases of contagious diseases the charge 
shall be not more than one dollar and fifty cents per day for each 
alien so received and cared for, but if such an alien shall receive 
such care for seven or more consecutive days, the charge shall be

brief mentioned in paragraph " 3 " hereof. 

5. To render to the party of the second part such additional cer- 
tificates (signed by the principal medical officer, as described in 
paragraph " 3 '^ hereof) regarding aliens reported to the party of 
the second part in accordance with this contract, as may be required 
by the party of the second part. 

6. To allow an officer or officers of the United States Immigra- 
tion Service and an officer or officers of the United States Public 
Health and ]\Iarine Hospital Service, or other physician legally 
authorized by the party of the second part to make an examination 
of aliens, to have access to any alien reported under this contract. 

Second: The party of the second part, upon condition that the 
party of the first part faithfully perform each and every provision 
hereof, and upon the establishment to the satisfaction of the party 
of the second part of an alien's right to relief hereunder, hereby 
agrees to pay the party of the first part not more than the amounts 
specified in paragraph ^^ 4 " hereof for the period of time such alien 
is so accommodated and cared for from the date of mailing^ of 
the notification, medical certificate and brief as provided by para- 
graph " 3 " hereof until deportation or the expiration of one year 
after such alien's entry into the United States, in cases of public 
charges from causes arising subsequent to arrival, or until deporta- 
tion is effected by the party of the second part on a finding by the 
Department that they have become public charges from prior exist- 
ing causes within three years of landing in the United States, in the 
cases of public charges from causes existing prior to arrival in the 
United States. All pa}Tiaents hereunder are to be made in accord- 
ance with the method of rendering statements and vouchers de- 
scribed in paragraph " 4 " hereof. 

Third: The parties hereto further mutually agree as follows: 

A. That this agreement shall in no wise be construed as affect- 
ing the right of the party of the second part, at its own discretion, 
to remove and deport any alien who may receive accommodation 
and care under this contract and thereby terminate the charge by 
the party of the first part hereunder, although the one year or three 
3^ear period, as described in paragraph " 1 " and division '' Second "

COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS, 
By Leontine Lincoln, 
Chairman of the State Board of Charity. 
Witness to signature of official of Commonwealth: 
Eugene Cote. 
John D. Wells. 

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, 
By Geo. B. Billings, 
Commissioner of Immigration, Port of Boston. 
Witness to sig-nature of the Commissioner: 
A. W. Stockwell. 
A. W. Hoe. 

Approved : July 30, 1908. 

Wm. R. Wheeler, 
Acting Secretary of Commerce and Labor. 

August 9, 1910, a new contract was entered into, repealing 
the terms of the previous agreement, with two important excep- 
tions: the time within which statement and vouchers may be 
rendered was limited to " twenty days after the close of the 
calendar month in which occurs the death of the alien, or re- 
moval from the institution for deportation, or discharge from 
the institution ; " in cases of illness arising from causes existing 
prior to landing, reimbursement was to be claimed only from 
the date of issuance of warrant of arrest and until deportation, 
no such case to be paid for unless deportation be actually ef- 
fected. 



Part I.] GENERAL AYORK OF THE BOARD. 141 

Notice of termination of this new contract, with a view to 
further restriction of the liability of the United States to pay 
for the support of the indigent sick among her immigrants, is 
embodied in the following communication : — 

Department of Commerce and Labor, Office of the Secretary, 
Washington, November 21, 1910. 
Xo. 52730/75. 

Commissioner of Immigration, Boston, Massachusetts. 

SiPt ; — The provisions of Rule 39 of the Immigration Regula- 
tions do not contemplate the payment by the Government of hos- 
pital charges on account of aliens who become public charges from 
causes arising subsequent to landing, except in the event that de- 
portation is accomplished at Government expense and with the con- 
sent of the alien concerned, as expressly set forth in the said rule. 

It appears however, that the agreement with the Commonwealth 
of Massachusetts (State Board of Charity), dated August 9, 1910, 
provides for the payment by the Government of the hospital charges, 
at fixed rates agreed upon, on account of such alien who becomes 
a public charge within one year after landing, from causes arising 
subsequent thereto, irrespective as to vdiether or not such alien is 
deported under the terms of the said Rule 39. 

Pursuant to the reservation set forth in paragraph " D," Caption 
Third, of the contract cited above, you are authorized and in- 
structed to serve written notice upon the Commonwealth of Mas- 
sachusetts, through the Chairman of the State Board of Charity, 
that the party of the second part (the United States) intends to 
terminate the said contract, effective at the close of December 31, 
1910. 

At the same time, you will notify the State authorities that the 
Department can see no necessity of having a formal contract to 
cover the classes of cases to which the existing agreement applies; 
no such arrangement exists in other States, and the procedure, on 
and after January 1, 1911, will of necessity be the same in Massa- 
chusetts as that followed in other jurisdictions; i.e., a schedule of 
fixed rates, satisfactory to the Department, may be filed and ap- 
proved; the payment of charges subsequently accruing under the 
terms of Rules 36 and 39 of the Immigration Regulations only be- 
ing made upon special departmental authority in each case coming 
within the purview of said rules, respectively. In the event, how- 
ever, that no such rates are filed and approved, it will be imprac- 
ticable to authorize the payment of any hospital charges under 
either of the rules mentioned. 

Respectfully, 

(Signed) Bexj. S. Cable, 

Acting Secretary.

CHAEITABLE CORPOEATIONS. 



Investigatioxnt of Charitable Organizations seeking In- 
corporation. 

Chapter 181 of the Acts of 1910 requires the Board to in- 
vestigate, give public hearing, and report its findings to the 
Secretary of the Commonwealth, in all cases of charitable or- 
ganizations which seek incorporation. The text of the act is as 
follows : — 

Acts of 1910, Chapter 181. 

Section 1. Before making and issuing a certificate for the incor- 
poration of a charitable corporation the secretary of the commonwealth 
shall also forward such statement as is described in the preceding sec- 
tion to the state board of charity, which shall immediately make an 
investigation as to the persons who have asked to be incorporated 
and as to the purposes of the incorporation, and any other materinl 
facts relative thereto, and shall give them a pubhc hearing, notice of 
which shall be published once a week for three successive weeks in 
some paper published in the county in which the corporation is to 
have its principal office or rooms, and if said office or rooms are to 
be in Boston, in some Boston daily paper, the last publication to be 
at least three days before the day set for the hearing, and shall forth- 
with report to the secretary of the commonwealth all the facts ascer- 
tained by it. If it appears to the secretary of the commonwealth from 
said report or otherwise that the probable purpose of the formation 
of the proposed corporation is to cover any illegal business, or that 
the persons asking for incorporation are not suitable persons, from 
lack of financial ability or from any other cause, he shall refuse to 
issue his certificate. If he refuses to issue his certificate, the persons 
asking to be incorporated may appeal to the superior court, which 
shall hear the case and finally determine whether or not the certificate 
of incorporation shall be issued. 

Section 2. This act shall take effect upon its passage. 

Between March 7, the date on which this act became opera- 
tive, and the close of the fiscal year, the Board has investigated, 
given hearings, and reported upon the 41 applications for char-

Duke of Abruzzi Mutual Aid and Benefit Association, Newton. 

Following closely the trend of tbe Board's reports, 27 of the 
above petitions have been granted and charters issued, while 13, 
or 30 per cent., have been refused. One application was with- 
drawn after report. 

Experience with the new law, though short, has been full 
enough to demonstrate the value of the new plan; it is a salu- 
tary provision, advancing the purposes of worthy charities, 
emphasizing the importance of skill and efficiency in charita- 
ble undertakings, tending to safeguard the contributing public 
against imposition in the name of charity. 

Ij^spectiox of Charitable CoRPOEATioisi'S. 

Acts of 1909, Chapter 379, provide that: ''The state board 
of charity, upon the request or with the consent of a charitable 
corporation which, under the provisions of section fourteen of 
chapter eighty-four of the Revised Laws, as amended by chapter 
four hundred and two of the acts of the year nineteen hundred 
and three, is required to make an annual report to said board, 
shall, at least once in every year, visit and inspect the institu- 
tion or investigate the work of such corporation." 

Two hundred and eighty-one corporations have consented to 
inspection under this act, while 5 have refused to allow the 
inquiry. Their attitude in the matter has been noted at the 
end of each report, in all instances where an answer was re- 
turned to the circular sent. Schedules for use in the required 
inspection have been drawn and an inspector appointed for the 
work. Much preliminary investigation has been necessary ; and 
the field work was not started until the close of the fiscal year. 
1^0 statistics relating to inspection can be presented until next 
year. 



vi STATE BOARD OF CHARITY. [P. D. 17. 

Annual Reports of Charitable Corporations. 

Section 14 of chapter 84 of the Revised Laws, as amended 
by chapter 402 of the Acts of 1903, provides that: ''A char- 
itable corporation vv^hose personal property is exempt from taxa- 
tion under the provisions of clause three of section five of 
chapter twelve shall annually, on or before the first day of 
^N'ovember, make to the state board of charity a written or 
printed report for its last financial year, showing its property, 
its receipts and expenditures, the whole number and the aver- 
age number of its beneficiaries and such other information as 
the board may require." 

Of the 753 corporations whose returns were called for dur- 
ing the last official year, 108 failed to respond; 75 of these 
delinquents have never rendered the report required under the 
law, while 33 have heretofore made the return.

League of Assistance to the Consumptives have not reported 
since 1908. 

The reports of the remaining 645 corporations, including 
96 whose reports were secured for the first time this year, are 
published substantially in the form rendered. They are not 
under oath, and their accuracy and completeness are not guar- 
anteed by this Board. 

The Board recommends, as a further safeguarding of the 
public interest, an amendment of the law which will insure the 
prompt filing of annual returns under oath, and, in the case of 
new corporations, a clear and definite statement of their pur- 
pose. The reasons for the Board's recommendations in this 
matter are given at length in Part I.
